Tour and Activity Plans
What is a Tour and Activity Plan?
A Tour and Activity plan is a tool designed to help you plan safe Scouting activities.The tour plan serves as a guide and checklist to make sure trip leadership is trained or certified, that the right equipment is available, and that there is safe and appropriate transportation to and from the event. It helps to define driver qualifications and minimum limits of insurance coverage for drivers and vehicles used to transport participants. The tour plan is a four page document that can be filled out electronically, printed and filed with your chartered organization.
The Tour and Activity plan is located online in your My.Scouting.org account. The first step is to sign in to your account. Which means you will have to be registered and your BSA ID number tied into your My.Scouting account. Once logged in, under Menu click Legacy Tools, then scroll down to Tour and Activity Plans to get started.
