Every Scouting Activity, Patrol Meeting, Den Meeting, Roundtable, Evening Campfire, Board of Review, Court of Honor, etc, etc, should include at least one brief moment called a Reflection where the leader (or assigned chaplains aide) teaches the group one or more of scouting's key principles.

BSA Mission of Scouting: The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

BSA Vision of Scouting: The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
