Being Safeguarding Aware


The camping season is fast approaching! As such, now is a good time to think about how you can safeguard both young people and adults while on residential experiences.


Think carefully about tent groups, for example:

What is your male/female split?

How will you manage that according to ratios?

What are the changing facilities available at your campsite or accommodation? Are they suitable?


The Scout Association have some great safety tips when camping here.


Remind yourself of the Yellow Card, the Orange Card for Young Leaders, the Purple Card for Safe Scouting and Emergency Procedures and the Green Card for Alcohol in Scouting.
