11. Investiture – What is it all about?
The investiture ceremony is the time when a Cub, by reciting the Cub Promise, publicly announces their commitment to the Cub Law.
At the ceremony, the Cub makes a Promise to the other Cubs of their troop and to all the Cubs of the world. It is once the candidate has made this Promise that they become a Cub.
The future cub will need to learn both the Cub Promise and the Cub Law for this ceremony.
12. The Cubs Promise

I promise that I will do my best,
to do my duty to God and to the Queen,
to help other people,
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

13. The Cubs Law

Cub Scouts always do their best,
think of others before themselves,
and do a good turn every day.

14. The Cubs Prayer

Teach us good Lord,
To serve thee as we ought,
To give, and not to count the cost,
To fight, and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to seek any reward,
Save that of knowing that we do thy will.
