First Class - Chivalry   First Class - Chivalry Ceremony   Scout Ceremony

This Ceremony is meant for 1st Class scouts.
7-candle Scout candelabra
[make sure candles are lit up through 2nd class]

As the number of lit candles increases, so does the Scoutís advancement along the trail to Eagle. The next milestone in advancement for scouts is First Class. At this point, the scout is more capable in the outdoors, able to care for himself and his patrol, and ready for the challenges of leadership.

[call scouts and parents forward]

In the days of chivalry, after a squire had earned the right to carry the sword and shield, it was customary for him to retire to the privacy of the chapel on the evening before he was to be made a knight. There he prayed that he might live worthy of the honor that was his, and that he might never bring disgrace on his knighthood.

As a First Class Scout, you are entering the knighthood of Scouting: you have earned the right to demonstrate and abide by the code to which a true and mature Scout is forever bound: the Scout Oath, Law, slogan and motto.

[Scout names], do you accept this great responsibility?

Then, as a First Class Scout, I charge you to continue your development so that you may better serve your fellowmen in the spirit of chivalry.

Please have your parent pin this First Class badge over your 2nd Class badge. Then, present this pin to your parent.

Troop _____, attention!

Please join me in congratulating this new First Class scout!
