The pack outdoor activity coordinator helps the boys get what they want most out of Scouting—camping, hiking and outdoor adventure. Your job is to help them develop a love for the outdoors. Specifically, you will:
- Help the Cubmaster plan and arrange for outdoor activities.
- Arrange for property and fire permits
and tour and activity plans when required. (Saturday, April 1st, 2017, the Tour and Activity Plan was discontinued. As part of the announcement, BSA stated: “The Scouting program, as contained in our handbooks and literature, inherently integrates safety considerations. However, no policy or procedure will replace the review and vigilance of trusted adults and leaders at the point of program execution.” Get details here )
- Arrange for safe transportation when needed.
- Plan first aid for emergencies.
- Help Webelos den leaders plan and arrange for outdoor equipment as needed.
- Arrange for Safe Swim Defense implementation for all outings involving swimming.
