Online Safety Training for Tour Permits

A Tour Permit is an activity plan you must file with the Utah National Parks Council everytime you 1) go on an activity 25 driving minutes from your meeting location, 2) involve a high adventure activity, or 3) attend a district/council event. This document provides liability insurance for your group while on your activity and is requested two weeks in advance of your event (encouraging you to plan ahead). It is submitted online through the MyScouting portal, hand-delivered to the Council Service Center, or faxed to (801)437-6239.

Where swimming or boating is included in the program, Safe Swim Defense and/or Safety Afloat standards are to be followed. If climbing/rappelling is included, then Climb on Safely must be followed. One adult in the group must be trained for each activity. At least one person must be trained in CPR from any recognized agency for Saftey Afloat and Climb on Safely. Youth Protection training and a review of "Guide to Safe Scouting" are also required. Effective January 2009, at least one leader must indicate they have completed the online Weather Smart module training.
