As a member of the 23rd Limerick Scout Group you will be asked to make the Scout Law and Promise and expected to abide by its principals. With this in mind and to help all our Youths and Adults get the most out of their Scouting experience, we have put together the following Code of Conduct and we ask that members sign it and that they will abide by it while participating in Scout meetings and activities (we should also try to do the same in their wider lives)
The Code of Conduct is a set of rules that are carried through the group from Beavers right up to Rovers and Scouters, the intention is to ensure that everyone is treated equally and gets the most out of scouting and we all have FUN.
Code of Conduct
- We are all members of the 23 rd Limerick Family – be proud of this. Help and support each other at all times.
- We are at Beavers/Cubs/Scouts/Ventures to have Fun – go out there and see what we can achieve

While we would hope that all members abide to the above Code, we have agreed a Card System to handle breaches should they occur. It is our hope that we won’t have to issue any cards to our youth members and if we do, that it done seldomly.
