We mentioned that the Investiture Ceremony should be one of the most special and memorable moments of a Scout’s time in the program and it's important that these core features are presented with sincerity and a sense of occasion.
The member making their Scout Promise – makes the Scout sign with their right hand and places their left hand on the Unit or Group flag
Other members of the Unit being present and involved
The ceremony is youth-led in a developmentally appropriate way
The presentation of new uniform items (such as membership badges, the Group scarf, Introduction to Scouting & Introduction to Section badges)
Note: some items will require program components to be completed before the investiture occurs
Have you invited your Group Leader?
The new member feeling part of something special!
The involvement of the new member’s peer mentor
The ceremony should not be drawn-out; 5 minutes is a good length of time.
