This Unit Operating Document  is presented strictly as an example of work by a Scouting  Unit.      The Viking Council BSA does not,  in any way,  reject or endorse the specifics that are contained therein.   Units are  encouraged to positively address their own particular needs based on the 12 Points of the Scout Law

Below is a copy of the Code of Conduct used by Troop 283. It is adapted from another troop in the state.

Code of Conduct

In order to provide a positive, safe, and enriching environment for all scouts, while offering opportunities for wonderful adventures, the following rules have been established:

    • I will follow the Scout law, Scout Oath, and Outdoor Code, and I will remember that these are the basis for all the following rules and should be the basis for all of my actions.

    • I am expected to follow the posted or verbal schedule of activities and assignments specified by the troop leadership.

    • I am expected to be on time for all troop events.

    • I may not use or possess any alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or illegal drugs. If found, my parents and/or the police will be notified immediately.

    • When on outings I understand, unless otherwise posted, that lights will be out and I will be in bed by 11:00 PM. I will be quiet.

    • No visitors will be allowed in other people's tents from 11:00 PM until 8:00 AM.

    • Sounds that can be heard outside my tent after lights out are disrespectful and disturbing to others. Lack of compliance will be dealt with by the troop leaders.

    • If I damage any property owned by a camp I am visiting, the troop, or another individual, I will pay for it.

    • The use of profanity or abusive language will not be tolerated. I understand that I will be fined $1.00 if I am found violating this rule by an adult.

    • I will not bring any electronic devices like radios, walkmans, game devices, etc. to any troop events.

    • will use matches and lighters only when appropriate and safe and only if I have my Fireman's chit.

    • I will follow "Toten Chip" rules and regulations when using knives, saws, and axes.

    • I will use the buddy system on all camping events.

Our troop is primarily responsible for the behaviour, safety, and welfare of our member on all camping events. At District or Council events, as well ast at BSA camps, all camp staff have the right and responsibility of helping and coreecting any problem they encounter. I will follow the directions of those leaders as if they were my troop's leaders.

The web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
