Guide to Safe Scouting update
Tue, 20 Apr 1999 21:37:28 EDT
I want to commend the US Scouting Service gang for their, well, service in
presenting the updated G2SS in their page at:
They have taken the text and made it easy to see changes by highlighting new
text additions and noting changes and deletions from the last edition. I took
my new version and made notes on what had changed from the old in it, and
also took my old one and noted changes in it. I did this because I teach the
new H&S curriculum and I still have only the old ones to give out. Council
hasn't gotten in the new ones yet, although they ordered them in November and
I got my (single) copy last week. Maybe soon?
Whenever I teach this curriculum, I am gratified at the number of people who
are excited to learn new material on how to do their Scouting safely, and
why. It's one area where I can get immediate changes in behavior in learners!
Now if I can just find the time to review the new Explorer Youth Protection
