This resulted in the reopening of the 1st Orange Walk Scout Unit. Diego started his meetings at the Nature Park in the same area with 4 prospective members.

 

After the first meeting the news spread and the students started coming to the place where they heard they could have fun and learn at the same time.  One month later, the membership increased to 10 and as the members kept sharing their experience with their friends, the numbers kept increasing.

On September 16, 2011, at the Queen Elizabeth Park, the Ministry of Education held their Students Rally in connection with the September 21st Independence Day celebrations at which time in front of the over two thousand students, the prospective members made the Scout Promise:

A Scout is trustworthy

A Scout is loyal

A Scout is helpful to others

A Scout shares with everyone

A Scout is kind

A Scout protects life and nature

A Scout is organized and does nothing by halves

A Scout takes life cheerfully

A Scout takes care of his or her things and values work
