Two Deep Leadership

As part of the Boy Scouts of America®, we adhere to the official Guide to Safe Scouting regulations that provide direction in maintaining a safe Scouting experience for a broad range of Scouting activities. The guideline that has the most noticeable impact on the Cub Scout level is that of TWO DEEP LEADERSHIP. Youth protection guidelines require that all group activities involving Cub Scouts maintain the presence of at least two adult leaders. Please be prepared to say “YES” when your Cub Scout’s Den leader asks your assistance in helping to serve as a second leader.

It is also recommended that every Scout Parent take the BSA Youth Protection Training offered on-line at Simply register as a guest and proceed at your leisure. The program will take you no more than 45 minutes to complete.
