Safety Activity Checkpoints

Below you can download the Safety Activity Checkpoints for the activity you wish to do.  If Safety Activity Checkpoints do not exist for an activity you and the girls are interested in, check with your council before making any definite plans with the girls.

A few activities are allowed only with written council pre-approval and only for girls 12 and over, while some are off-limits completely.

Caution: You must get written pre-approval from your council for girls ages 12 and older who will operate motorized vehicles, such as go-carts and personal watercraft; use firearms; take trips on waterways that are highly changeable or uncontrollable; experience simulated skydiving and zerogravity rooms; or fly in noncommercial aircraft, such as small private planes, helicopters, sailplanes, untethered hot air balloons, and blimps.

Warning: The following activities are never allowed for any girl: potentially uncontrolled free-falling (bungee jumping, hang gliding, parachuting, parasailing, and trampolining); creating extreme variations of approved activities (such as high-altitude climbing and aerial tricks on bicycles, skis, snowboards, skateboards, water-skis, and wakeboards); hunting; shooting a projectile at another person; riding allterrain vehicles and motor bikes; and taking watercraft trips in Class V or higher.

Please note that some of the activities require council approval through the Activity and Trip Application:

These activities are Challenge Courses, Climbing, Fencing, Horseback Riding, Indoor Sky Diving, Canoeing, Kayaking, Sailing, Scuba Diving, Skateboarding, Snorkeling, Surfing, Swimming, Tubing, Waterskiing, White Water Rafting and Wind Surfing.
