Safety Activity Checkpoints

When preparing for any activity with girls, always begin with the Safety Activity Checkpoints (SACs) written specifically for that particular activity, as well as the Introduction. In the Introduction you will find specific information for the checkpoints that are common to all activities (e.g. Communicate with council and parents), as well as an overview of the format for all SACs. Additional information can also be found in the Girl Scout Safety Guidelines (a copy of which is included at the end of this Introduction).

Note: In addition to reading these checkpoints yourself, you can also e-mail to or print them for girls, co-volunteers and parents/guardians.
