To learn the safe, proper way to use a pocketknife, climb a mountain or navigate whitewater, Scouts can crack a handbook or flip open a merit badge pamphlet.
But where should adult leaders turn for guidance on topics like health forms, age-appropriate activities and BSA insurance? They should start at scouting.org/health-and-safety, where the BSA has posted answers to questions leaders ask most.
This resource is where we found the questions for our latest Scouting Safety Quiz. It should prove suitably challenging for rookie and veteran Scouters alike. Good luck!
Anyone who takes this quiz below will be entered to win a $100 scoutshop.org gift card. (Contest ended October 31, 2018, but you can still take the quiz). Best used with the most updated version of your web browser.
