Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Central Region Areas

The Central Region's primary responsibility is to aid and support each local council's Venturing program operations. Among the ways the Region reaches out to local councils is through Area Presidents. Each Area President is a youth Venturer that works closely with both the regional leadership and with the councils in their respective area. Additional support for the uniqueness of the Sea Scouting program is provided by a Regional Boatswain.
