The BSA’s new adult registration requirements — mandating that all adults accompanying a Scouts BSA troop to a resident camp or other Scouting activity lasting 72 hours or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training — will go into effect June 1, 2018, at the start of the BSA summer camp season.

Requiring registration, background checks, and YPT for adults on Scouts BSA extended activities adds another dimension of protection for Scouts.

This change applies to Scouts BSA program only at this time

  • The new requirement applies to any adult accompanying a Scouts BSA group on a single Scouting activity where they are present for three or more nights (not necessarily consecutive)
  • These adults must be registered as leaders, including the completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training before the activity (CBCs cannot be expedited) 

Why is this happening?

  • This is meant to enhance the “safe space” for overnight Scouts BSA activities.
  • While incidents are rare, this will serve as an added layer of protection for our highest risk activities.

Please inform your troop leaders of this change to allow time for everyone attending summer camp to be in compliance with these new requirements.
