Scouting Safely

We want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees is an important part of the Scouting experience. The Scouting program, as contained in our handbooks and literature, integrates many safety features.

Make sure your unit is up-to-date on keeping Scouting safe for our youth.
