The Woodcraft Laws:

1. Be clean; both yourself and the place you live in.

 

2. Be strong. Understand and respect your body.

 

3. Protect all harmless wild life. Conserve the woods and flowers.

 

4. Hold your word of honor sacred.

 

5. Play fair, for fair play is truth and foul play is treachery.

 

6. Be reverent. Worship the Great Spirit and respect all worship of it by others. For none have all the truth and all who worship reverently have claims on our respect.

 

7. Be brave. Courage is the noblest of all gifts.

 

8. Be silent while your elders are speaking and otherwise show them deference.

 

9. Obey. Obedience is the first duty of the Woodcrafter.

 

10. Be kind. Do at least one act of unbargaining service each day.

 

11. Be helpful. Do your share of the work.

 

12. Be joyful. Seek the joy of being alive.
