72-Hour Rule Will Affect Camps: Be Prepared

The BSA has announced new policies to ensure compliance with mandatory training requirements. Prepare your staff and volunteers to address them before June 1, 2018:

  • Effective June 1, 2018, adults accompanying a Scouting unit who are present at the activity for 72 total hours or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training. The 72 hours need not be consecutive.


Background Check Required for all adults:

Michigan requires a Background Check Form for the state in which you reside. 

If you have completed this form in the years 2010 to 2017, you do not need to do so again.
