Guide to Safe Scouting

First edition:
Latest edition:2007 printing
BSA Supply Number:34416A

The purpose of the Guide to Safe Scouting is to prepare adult leaders to conduct Scouting activities in a safe and prudent manner. The policies and guidelines have been established because of the real need to protect members from known hazards that have been identified through 90-plus years of experience. Limitations on certain activities should not be viewed as stumbling blocks; rather, policies and guidelines are best described as stepping-stones toward safe and enjoyable adventures.

All volunteers participating in official Scouting activities should become familiar with the Guide to Safe Scouting.

The Guide to Safe Scouting is available in the following formats:

  • One for reading on-line - this version is divided into chapters and includes a search engine.
  • Another for reading off-line Portable Document Format PDF (1284 KB):the entire publication is presented in a single interface to facilitate print-out.
  • A bound hard-copy version (BSA Supply #34416A) is also available. To obtain a copy, contact your local council or call 1-800-323-0732 to request an Official Boy Scout Catalog.
