We are trying to have more activities out doors.
When do I need to fill out a tour plan and how do I do that?
 - Times when a tour and activity plan must be submitted, what training is needed (YPT & Hazardous is needed for all permits), and more.
Video - This Video walks you through the tour plan online application
Don't need a tour permit?  Please have parents fill out the ACTIVITY CONSENT FORM

When you create an event in Scoutbook you can optionally print permission slips for your invitees. Scoutbook automatically fills out either an LDS or non-LDS permission slip depending how your unit is setup in Scoutbook.  

If you don't see your ward or stake do the following:  You can enter your ward and stake from the Edit Pack or Edit Troop page. Once they are entered, go back to your event and press the Permission Slips button and they will appear with the ward and stake information.

(All this info is on our District Website too)
