New Tour and Activity Plan

The Tour Activity Plan is simply a planning tool to help leaders be prepared for a safe and fun adventure. It can help you ensure trained leadership is in place, equipment is available, and there is safe and appropriate transportation to and from an event. The plan allows unit leadership to certify the plan. The local council reviews plans but does not approve them. An email workflow can be used to notify the council, chartered organization, committee chair, and emergency contact that a plan has been submitted for review. It is important to maintain current leadership information in the system. It contains interactive prompts and warnings. It provides active links to program-required training and education. It provides the ability to store, retrieve, copy, and reuse previously submitted tour and activity plans It provides the ability to update the plan up until the day before the tour and activity date. You will be able to review and fix any deficiencies flagged by the system prior to submitting the plan. Functionality allows you to upload files such as trekking plans and flight plans.

Please use the online version of the plan whenever possible. It is a unit-level tool when you sign into MyScouting.org .
