The safety of your child while involved in any Scouting activity is the unit leader’s number one priority. For this reason, the BSA has created safety policies and procedures, and established age-appropriate guidelines for all Scouting activities.
All potential adult leaders must be approved and also go through a background check. Find our more at: http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx
Scouting also provides a guide to Safe Scouting with specific details and regulations. Find our more at: http://www.scouting.org/sitecore/content/Home/HealthandSafety.aspx
