The Explorer Code

As an Explorer...
I believe that America's strength lies in our trust in God and in the courage, strength and traditions of our people.
I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and will maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life.
I will treasure my American heritage and will do all that I can to preserve and enrich it.
I will recognize the dignity and worth of all humanity and will use fair play and goodwill in my daily life.
I will acquire the Explorer attitude that seeks truth in all things and adventure on the frontiers of our changing world.
