Fort A.P. Hill, Va. (April 31, 2005) - The spirit of brotherhood through scouting closely resembles that found in the Navy, which add to the spirit of adventure during the National Boy Scouts Jamboree. More than 40,000 Boy Scouts from every state in America and dozens of other countries attended the Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill.

Court of Honor Ceremony

During a Scout meeting, court of honor, campfire program, or special gathering, a well-presented ceremony will add meaning and enhance the experience.

Ceremonies serve Scouting in a variety of ways. A simple or elaborate ceremony can:

  • communicate something significant is taking place!
  • accentuate an event or accomplishment!
  • entertain!
  • provide inspiration!

We all feel uplifted when we experience an impressive ceremony.  Through the years, creative ceremonies have perpetuated Scouting’s unique fascination, attraction, and timeless mystique. There’s a marked difference between, on one hand, saluting the American flag while repeating the Pledge of Allegiance in the same way for each meeting, and, on the other hand, adding a new dimension by impressively bringing out the colors in a well-rehearsed fashion followed by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in conjunction with an informative narration describing its meaning.

On this website there are a variety of ceremony ideas that can be adapted and applied for use during Scouting events that will elevate the occasion and provide positive outcomes.
