Scout Slogan Explained

Boy Scout Slogan
Do a Good Turn Daily.

This is the slogan of the Boy Scouts.

Some Good Turns are big - saving a life, helping out after floods or other disasters, recycling community trash, working with your patrol on conservation projects.

But Good Turns are often small, thoughtful acts - helping a child cross a busy street, going to the store for an elderly neighbor, cutting back brush that is blocking a sign, doing something special for a brother or sister, welcoming a new student to your school.

A Good Turn is more than simple good manners. It is a special act of kindness

That is all that the the Scout Slogan means, which seems short compared to the other explanations for the other scout ideals but that is exactly what it is about.

Yours in Scouting Service
