Tour Plan Policy

New Tour and Activity Plan – Live May 10, 2012

The new Tour and Activity Plan has officially replaced the old Tour Plan beginning May 10, 2012.  All of your previously approved Tour Plans will remain active.  Any new plans need to be completed using the new procedure.

If you have submitted a Tour Plan and it is yet to be acted upon, please contact our council office ASAP and check on the status.  If no action has been taken, you will need to resubmit the trip via the new Tour and Activity Plan.

The Tour and Activity Plan FAQ page can be viewed at: http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/TourPlanFAQ.aspx

An informative training video has been developed on how to use the new Tour and Activity Plan application.  The video can be found on the FAQ page through the link above.

www.myscouting.org and select the Tour and Activity Plan under your “Unit Tool.”

Is there a training program to show me how to complete the Tour and Activity Plan online?

Why change the tour permit?
This update replaces the former “online” tour permit with an interactive planning tool that allows you greater flexibility.  It is the first phase to the online version – with more enhancements to come.

What is the difference between a tour permit and the online version?
Several items, with the online version:

·         The unit leadership certifies the plan

·         The local council reviews plans but does not approve them

·         An e-mail workflow can be used to notify the council, chartered organization, committee chair and emergency contact that a plan has been submitted for review

·         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 (to applicable to permits)

·         It provides the ability to update the plan up until the day before the tour and activity date
