Tour Plan

The BSA Tour and Activity Plan is no longer required to be completed for Scouting-related activities. However, the need to preplan activities does not go away. Assessing the risks and hazards for each activity, while identifying appropriate safety measures is still appropriate. Remember, “Be Prepared” means that we need to plan ahead for activities to be safe and successful. For more information, please visit the Tour and Activity Plan Terminated FAQ.
