Occoneechee Council Cub Scout Guidelines: A Guide for Volunteers and Professionals Who Administer the Cub Scout Program
Local Tour Permit Guidelines
Occoneechee Council requires the use of a local tour permit for all overnight trips and for all activities. In addition, activities that need trained supervision according to BSA guidelines, also require a tour permit. These activities include:
- Aquatic activities that include swimming or boating.
- Shooting Sports activities such as BB-shooting, rifle shooting, black powder, or Archery.
- Climbing activities such as rock climbing or rappelling.
In planning events, unit leaders should ensure that only mature drivers, with safe driving records, provide transportation. Their driving records should demonstrate that they adhere to the laws of the state and that they are safe operators of a motor vehicle.
The local tour permit is obtained from the Scout Office, Scout Shops and must be filed at any of these offices prior to the activity. On-line tours permits are also permitted and the council will accept tour Permits filed via FAX (919) 872-1159.
At least one registered adult who has completed BSA Youth Protection Training must be present at all events and activities that require a tour permit. Remember units MUST maintain two-deep leadership at all times.
Whenever units leave their designated meeting place for any activity or field trip, the unit leader should obtain an informed consent authorization . Occoneechee Council recommends that the standards of an informed consent authorization be used for the planning and safety considerations of any activity.
