Youth Protection

The BSA takes safety and youth protection very seriously.  A background check is performed for all Scout Leaders and they must be trained in Youth Protection to ensure the safety of the Scouts.  Our Pack strictly follows the Youth Protection and safety policies of the BSA. We also highly recommend that all parents take the free, online Youth Protection course so that they are able to be more aware of the topic and learn how to protect their children. Learn more about Youth Protection.
