Safety and Permissions

Whether you are meeting with girls or planning an event, Girl Scouts has tools to help you reduce risk and make sure everyone's on the same page.


Safety Activity Checkpoints

Help keep girls and volunteers safe by making sure your activity meets or exceeds Girl Scouts’ standards for safety. The Safety Activity Checkpoints contains guidelines for specific activities—including archery, hiking, and selling cookies!

These guidelines were updated in 2018. Before any Girl Scout activity, download and read the General Safety Guidelines and the Preparing For Your Activity forms in addition to the Safety Activity Checkpoint you need.
