  1. An explorer’s honor is to be trusted.
  2. An explorer is loyal to his country, leaders, parents, and subordinates.
  3. An explorer’s duty is to serve others.
  4. An explorer is a friend to all and a brother to every other explorer.
  5. An explorer is courteous and chivalrous.
  6. An explorer sees in nature God’s creations; he loves plants and animals.
  7. An explorer obeys proper orders and leaves nothing half-finished.
  8. An explorer smiles and whistles under all difficulties.
  9. An explorer is thrifty; he takes care of his own possessions and those of others.

The Explorer Prayer:

Lord Jesus,
Teach us to be generous,
To serve You as You deserve it,
To give without counting,
To fight without care of injuries,
To work without looking for rest,
To spend ourselves without waiting for any reward
Except knowing that we fulfill Your holy will.
