Great news from Capital Area Council:
The Boy Scouts of America is ending the Tour and Activity Plan system and removing it from my.scouting.org, effective today, April 1, 2017 (no, this is not an April Fool’s). This decision by a BSA National Council cross-functional team will reduce the administrative burden on our volunteer leaders.
Our council’s Health and Safety Committee reminds volunteers that even though the Tour and Activity Plan system no longer exists, proper planning before a Scouting activity is a critical component to keeping Scouts, leaders, and parents safe. The Guide to Safe Scouting and other resources can help you in your planning. Those resources are found throughout the training and literature of the organization and listed in the FAQ document at this link.
Please join us with your unit for Camporee, hosted by North Shore’s Order of the Arrow chapter, on the weekend of March 31 – April 2 at the Smiley V in Liberty Hill. For details on the event, please see February North Shore District Newsletter. A sign-up sheet will be coming soon in a communication from the district.
