What about Child Safety?
Pack 617 places a great importance on child safety to create a secure environment for our members. Pack 617 adheres to the policy and procedures put in place by the the Council outlining Leadership Youth Protection Training, parental education and youth education.
Pack 617 follows a two-deep leadership program. This places two registered adult leaders, or one registered leader and a parent of a member, requirement on all trips, outings and meetings. Because Cub Scouting is a Parent and Child involved activity it is very common to have several members’ parents and a registered adult leader for these events and meetings.
Pack 617 communicates to both parents and children the importance of proper attire, first aid, proper equipment, hazard recognition and emergency response while attending activities both with the Pack as well as other youth involvement such as family time and school.
