The BSA’s Executive Board has approved a resolution to use the Scout Oath and Law in the not only the Boy Scout program, but also in the Cub Scout and Venturing programs.
That means the Cub Scout Promise will be retired and replaced with the Scout Oath and Law, however, the current Cub Scout motto, sign, salute and handshake will remain the same.
Also, the Venturing Oath, Code, sign and salute will each be retired and replaced with the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout sign and Scout salute.
Transitions like this take time, so the changes are not immediate. Venturers should start using the Scout material beginning in 2014. Cub Scouts won’t start until 2015.
