Guidance For Overnight Camping With More Than Three Units

From time to time, your Scouting unit may look to offer or take part in a multi-unit overnight outing run by another (or your) unit. Collaborating with other Scouting units can be a great way to enhance program, share costs, and leverage resources. To ensure that multi-unit events are managed with health and safety in mind, any overnight outings that include more than three Scouting units will need to follow additional guidance.  

What does my unit need to do if we are planning an outing for more than three units?

All units planning an overnight event or activity for more than three units should submit the Multi-Unit Program Planning Form. Following your submission,  you will receive communication about the additional steps required, if any, for your specific event or activity.  You can also reference the program checklists on this page for additional information.

Why do i need to do this?

As noted in the Guide to Safe Scouting, multi-unit outings need approval of the local council in order to maintain Scouting's insurance coverage for events.
