Tour Plan

Effective March 1, 2011, what are currently known as local and national tour permits will be superseded by what will be called the tour plan. *The online tour permit system will be suspended. This update is the accumulation of work by a cross-functional team of volunteers and staff including the Health and Safety Support Committee, Council Solutions, Outdoor Program Group, and Risk Management Advisory Panels.

Here is the definition of the tour plan in the Language of Scouting: "Units complete this form when planning for local, national, or international adventure. The plan helps ensure the unit is properly prepared, that qualified and trained leadership is in place, and that the right equipment is available for the adventure."

 Units are required to submit a tour plan for council review under one of the following circumstances:


  • Trips of 500 miles or more
  • Trips outside of council borders not to a council-owned property
  • Trips to any national high-adventure base, national Scout jamboree, National Order of the Arrow Conference, or regionally sponsored event 
  • When conducting the following activities outside of council or district events: 
    • Aquatics activities (swimming, boating, floating, scuba, etc.) 
    • Climbing and rappelling 
    • Orientation flights (process flying plan) 
    • Shooting sports 
    • Any activities involving motorized vehicles as part of the program (snowmobiles, boating, etc.) 
  • When conducting any Pack overnight campout
    • Any Webelos den overnight campout
  • At the council’s request
