Safe scouting allows a environment where scouts can feel and be safe. Whether in or out of scouting, we maintain our scouts' well-being and health physically and mentally.
Youth Protection Training
During our scout meetings and overnight trips, we ensure that the safety and security of scouts is assured. This can be achieved by reporting any child abuse or neglection. For more information, visit scouting.org in the Youth Protection page.
Two-deep leadership is the concept that there is always two leaders looking at everything scouts do. This is because one adult leader can possibly be biased and if only one adult leader sees what's going on, that's the only evidence that that event has of occurring.
Transportation is essential to be safe and responsible for all Scouting activities. All vehicles are required to be checked and have a Pre-Trip Transportation Inspection before travel.
The driver must be at or over the age of 18 and obey all laws and follow the youth protection guidelines.
