Guide to Safe Scouting

Update: The Boy Scouts of America has asked that I remove the Guide to Safe Scouting from the iPhone App Store. I’ve complied with their request, and am discussing with them the possibility of making it available again. We’ll see what they say. Thanks for your interest!


The Guide to Safe Scouting helps prepare adult leaders to lead Scouting activities safely and prudently. It contains policies and guidelines describing what activities scouts of different ages are permitted to participate in and how to do them safely. Following these policies and guidelines helps you lead fun, safe activities. These policies protect you and your scouts, and they also preserve Scout funds to support scouting, as the Boy Scouts of America self-funds a significant portion of each liability claim.

This application contains a complete, up-to-date Guide to Safe Scouting as distributed by the www.scouting.org website on 2/27/2010, reformatted for mobile devices and incorporated in an iPhone web app.

Get it in the iTunes App Store.

Use of this application avoids the environmental impact and paper consumption of the hardcopy versions.

This information is published as fair use of a freely available document, and is not published by or endorsed by the Boy Scouts of America.

Please let me know what you think of the application, or if you have any suggestions!
