The Boy Scouts of America is committed to creating safe environments for Scouts and leaders. Child abuse is an uncomfortable topic but an important one for us to cover to ensure the safety and well-being of our Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America has partnered with subject-matter experts from the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center Foundation to present the “Protect Yourself Rules” that help children recognize, respond to, and report abuse.
Before starting work on this adventure, the den leader should review Scouting’s Barriers to Abuse since the Protect Yourself Rules adventure is intended to complement our many existing youth-protection measures.
The Protect Yourself Rules Preview Adventures may be used as an elective adventure OR they may be earned in place of the Cyber Chip requirement for the Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light badges of rank.
Pack Meeting Program
This adventure may also be used as a pack meeting program. Break out the dens by rank so they can complete the activities for their adventure together. Below is a link to download all the den meeting plans for each rank for this adventure in one document to make it easier to share with pack leadership, den leaders, and parents.
