Safety Guidelines and Activity Checkpoints

Girl Scout Safety Guidelines

Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and emotional safety of girls, and we demonstrate that by agreeing to follow these standards at all times. (Note: See Volunteer Essentials for details on each standard.)

Safety Activity Checkpoints

As well, when preparing for any activity with girls, always begin with the Safety Activity Checkpoints written specifically for that particular activity.Note: In addition to reading these checkpoints yourself, you can also e-mail to or print them for co-volunteers, parents/guardians, and girls.
