Girl Scouts of Silver SageSafety


Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and emotional safety of girls, and we demonstrate that by agreeing to follow these 12 Safety Guidelines at all times.


As part of your safety responsibility as a volunteer, please become familiar with the safety information in the Safety-Wise chapter of the Volunteer Essentials Handbook.


Safety Checkpoints


As you plan specific activities, use the checkpoints below to assist you in planning for a safe activity. Each checkpoint offers information on where to do the activity, how to include girls with disabilities, where to find both basic and specialized gear required for the activity, how to prepare yourselves in advance of the activity, what specific steps to follow on the day of the activity, and so on.
