Tour Plans

Due to the increased volume the National Office suggests that you submit 21 days prior to your outing.  A Flying Permit must be attached to the Tour and Activity Plan for outings that involved air travel. 

ON LINE “Tour and Activity Plan”:

  1. Log in to www.myscouting.org THEN log in to your MyScouting account and select the tour and activity plan under your “Unit Tool”.
  2. Contact the National Service Desk for assistance at 972-580-2489, or the council office at 775-787-1111.
  3. Signatures are not required and the Tour Plan is delivered to the council electronically. 
  4. If there are questions or issues with the Tour Plan you will receive an email, if there are no issues the Plan is approved.

What DOES NOT change:

  • The Nevada Area Council policy requires that you file a Plan for every trip away from your regular meeting location.
  • At least one person on every trip must have current (within 2 years) Youth Protection AND Planning and Preparing for Hazardous Weather training AND any other activity special training required.
  • You must certify that you will have parent/guardian permission slips, have reviewed health forms, and are in possession of The Guide to Safe Scouting and other appropriate resources.
  • The TOUR LEADER must be at least 21 years of age, registered as a member with BSA, and sign the form.

 

PAPER FORM:  “Tour and Activity Plan” form.   The paper form (#680-014) is an editable PDF form that can be saved on your computer.  PDF version: www.scouting.org or www.scouter.org.  You may submit PLANS in person, by fax at 775-787-1114 or by email to linda.brant@scouting.org  No other paper form qualifies.  You must complete ALL PARTS of the form.  This form does have to be signed.  It will be reviewed and approved by the council office and returned to the unit.
