  1. But it is also referenced in the GTSS. https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss13/ (which is part of the program materials, and you agree to follow when you sign up as a leader). https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/bsa-scouter-code-of-conduct/ Might also suggest review of communicable disease guidance for leaders which includes vectors: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-103(18)_Prev_of_CommunicableDiseases.pdf
  2. And yet when offered an opportunity to engage within the Service Territory structure (national) and be part of the solution moving forward look at the responses that followed.
  3. @CynicalScouter You do have an answer that addresses both safety and program integrity. Not the one you wanted but an answer all the same. If you have other questions your appropriate point of contact is your local council youth protection champion or council staff / Scout Executive to address your particular concerns.
  4. Currently recruiting for Safe Scouting Leads for the 16 NST's. If you think that's you, message me.
  5. I used to be a Beaver. A good old Beaver too....
  6. Have you talked with your council? National statement on COVID - https://www.scouting.org/coronavirus/
  7. Hey I know that guy. @TAHAWK your council knows who to call if they have a question. There is no longer a volunteer facing interface outside the local council so any inquiry is going back to them,. And shooting at each other is still prohibited. In case you want to review other prohibited activities: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss07/#b
  8. Perhaps one of you could point out where it enables an CO to do events for others in the name of scouting on behalf of the local council or BSA? I don't think you are going to find that in there.
  9. Theories aside, perhaps one could review the CO agreement to see what is chartered or not? https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/membership/pdf/524-182_web.pdf RichardB
  10. https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/gss/gss07/#b See #16 & 17 @InquisitiveScouter And don't worry, working on your suggestions on tool guidelines. RichardB
  11. The purpose of the BSA National Camp Standards are to: 1) Promote the health, safety, and well-being of every camper, leader, visitor, and staff member while participating in a BSA-accredited camp program. 2) Guide councils so that each camper and leader obtain a quality program consistent with the BSA brand. If you would like to actually review the standards, resources and FAQ's (for the source on the above statement) on Short Term Camp: https://www.scouting.org/outdoor-programs/camping/short-term-camp/
  12. Or a more positive way of looking at this would be these venues offer an opportunity of proof of concepts at scale.
  13. Going to have to budget for non registered folks who participate. Probably upwards of $6 per participant, per year for a nationwide solution. Willing to add that on, or subsidize it let me know.
