The Explorer Code was discontinued when the Exploring program switched in 1998 to function as a career education program under the Learning for Life umbrella.

The text of the Explorer Code of the Boy Scouts of America, expressing the ideals to which all Explorers (boys and girls ages 14-21 registered in the Exploring Div. of the BSA) should be dedicated, is:

As an Explorer —

I believe that America's strength lies in her trust in God and in the courage and strength of her people.

I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and will maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life.

I will treasure my American heritage and will do all I can to preserve and enrich it.

I will recognize the dignity and worth of my fellow men and will use fair play and goodwill in dealing with them.

I will acquire the Exploring attitude that seeks the truth in all things and adventure on the frontiers of our changing world."
