      I remember the rule from when I was in the Boy Scouts in the mid-80s. I
      don't remember what we called it (I'm pretty sure it wasn't "The Boy Scout
      Rule,") but I do remember it coming up every time we were packing up.

      We were also a troop on a military base where some of our fathers had all
      kinds of different experience. So, I wasn't always sure which ideas were
      purely Boy Scout ideas, aside from what was in the book. We got exposed to
      all kinds of stuff, but always in a really safe way.

      But I do remember "leave the camp grounds cleaner than you found them" or
      something very close to that exact wording being promoted as a sort of a
      motto. It was 25 years ago give or take so some of the details are fuzzy.
