Promise

Scouts en Gidsen Vlaanderen has a progressive promise, a member uses the verse he/she understands. The first is for Kapoenen, the last for Jins and Leaders.[2]

Ik ben scout/ gids
Ik verken de wereld,
ik val, ik tuimel en ik sta weer op.
Ik wil mijn best doen.

Ik ben scout/gids, tussen scouts en gidsen
Daarom beloof ik
me in te zetten voor mijn groep,
want mijn werk is ploegwerk,
en onze inzet verzet bergen.

Ik ben scout/gids, tussen scouts en gidsen,
hier & nu; ginds & morgen
het spel dat we spelen is niet luchtledig.
Samen willen we de wereld verdraaien.

Ik ben scout/gids, tussen scouts en gidsen, in de wereld
zo hoop ik op iets meer dan wat ik zie.
Ik hoop dat wat ik doe niet voor niets is,
ik geloof dat wat we doen zin heeft,
ik beloof dat het niet om het even is.
