The Los Angeles Area Council recently made filing a Tour and Activity Plan a little bit easier.  Effective immediately:  Tour Plans are no longer required for all outings outside the normal meeting place provided that the activities are within the Los Angeles Area Council boundaries.  Under the new policy (the same as the National BSA policy), Tour and Activity Plans are required, but not limited for the following outings:

* Trips of 500 miles or more; or
* Trips outside of council borders (exception: not to council-owned properties Firestone Scout Reservation, Log Cabin Wilderness
   or Forest Lawn Scout Reservation); or
* Trips to any National High-Adventure base, National Scout Jamboree, National Order of the Arrow Conference, the Summit Bechtel * * Reserve, or a regionally sponsored event; or
* When planning Eagle Projects; or
* When conducting any of 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.)

In keeping with the “Keep it Simple” approach, volunteers are strongly encouraged to file online.   The Council will continue to accept walk-ins, scanned and faxed copies and Tour Plans reviewed at district roundtables and the Cabrillo Youth Camp Center.  To file online, registered volunteers must open a MyScouting.org account at http://www.MyScouting.org/ by keying-in their Membership ID Number.  If you have lost or have not received your Membership ID Card please contact Council Registrar, Estela Chicas at (213) 413-4400 Ext 346.
