AGE-APPROPRIATE GUIDELINES FOR SCOUTING ACTIVITIES

GUIDE TO SAFE SCOUTING

Annual Health & Medical Record and Consent Form

Tour Plan  Tour plans may be filed on-line.  Go to:  http://www.myscouting.org/.

Times when a tour and activity plan must be submitted for council review include the following:

  •   Trips of 500 miles or more; or
  •   Trips outside of council borders (exception: not to your council-owned property); or
  •   Trips to Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, Philmont Scout Ranch, Summit Bechtel Reserve (you will be asked to present a copy of  your tour and activity plan upon arrival), national Scout jamboree, National Order of the Arrow Conference, or a regionally sponsored event; or
  •   When conducting any of the following activities outside of council or district events:
    •  Aquatics activities (swimming, boating, floating, scuba, etc.)
    •   Climbing and rappelling
    •   Orientation flights (process flying plan)
    •   Shooting sports
    •   Any activities involving motorized vehicles as part of the program (snowmobiles, boating, etc.); or
    •   At a council's request (Contact your local council for additional guidelines or regulations concerning tour and activity plans; many have set guidelines for events or activities within council boundaries such as for Cub Scout overnight camping.)

Regardless, the tour and activity plan is an excellent tool that SHOULD be included in preparation for all activities, even those not requiring it. It guides a tour leader through itineraries, travel arrangements, two-deep leadership, supervision qualifications, and transportation.

Camp Staff - Work at Camp

Greater Los Angeles Area Council hires nearly 200 enthusiastic seasonal camp staff annually to serve as handicraft assistants, sports instructors, shooting sports assistants (archery, .22 caliber rifle, BB gun, skeet and black-powder), trading post operators/managers, maintenance and food service assistants, nature instructors and Scout skills instructors, lifeguards and aquatic instructors. These staff members serve at six camps from Lake Arrowhead, Catalina Island, Monrovia, Brea, San Pedro, and Califonia Eastern Sierra.

Campership Program

Camperships are made possible by Scouting fundraisers such as Friends of Scouting, product sales; and by many supportive benefactors.

All Scouts should experience the "wonderful world of camping" that Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting has to offer. The Greater Los Angeles Area Council is committed to ensuring Scouts have the opportunity to attend summer resident camp or Cub Scout day camp, and as such, we provide partial camperships to those in need to help them realize the "Outing in Scouting". All units are encouraged to participate in the annual popcorn sale and camp cards fundraiser to help Scouts earn money necessary to attend summer resident camp or Cub Scout day camp. Camperships are available to GLAAC Scouts attending GLAAC camps in the current calendar year.

The Council Campership Committee is concerned about the individual need and the unit's evaluation of the Scout for whom the request is made. 

Campership applications for summertime camping should be received in the council office fully completed by March 8, 2017 or April 6, 2017; and by extenuating circumstance to be considered for awarding. Applications will be reviewed by the Council Campership Committee shortly after the dates described; and by extenuating circumstances as well. Once applications are reviewed as approved or denied, the unit/reservation contact person will be notified via email with an updated statement as applicable and notice sent out to each family describing the award amount.
