Outdoor Code

> > > Triple Prizes < < <



As an American I will do my best to
Be clean in my outdoor manners
I will treat the outdoors as a heritage.
I will take care of it for myself and others.
I will keep my trash and garbage out of lakes, streams, fields, woods, and roadways.
Be careful with fire
I will prevent wildfire.
I will build my fires only where they are appropriate.
When I have finished using a fire, I will make sure it is cold out.
I will leave a clean fire ring, or remove all evidence of my fire.
Be considerate in the outdoors
I will treat public and private property with respect.
I will use low-impact methods of hiking and camping.
Be conservation minded
I will learn how to practice good conservation of soil, waters, forests, minerals, grasslands, wildlife, and energy.
I will urge others to do the same.

Would one use the Scout sign while repeating the Outdoor Code? I can't find any information on in. It has always been a practice when ever I've seen it but was wondering.

@John - There is no official stipulation that the scout sign should be made when reciting the Outdoor Code.  Typically, troops that recite it just include it along with the Scout Oath and Law so they already have the sign in place and continue that through the Outdoor Code.

Follow Me, Boys
