The Girl Scouts Safety Activity Checkpoints is a useful and necessary resource to help you and your girls plan your next great adventure. The Checkpoints offer individual activity-specific guides with tips on what gear to bring, what supplies you’ll need, what appropriate girl-to-adult ratios are for each activity, any age limitations that might exist for a particular activity, websites to check out for more information on the activity, how to include and support girls with disabilities, and whether or not a Trip and High Adventure Approval Form is required.
The Safety Activity Checkpoints are revisited and updated every year with new activities being added—so your girls will always have a never-ending pool of opportunities to choose from. Some of our newest additions include stand-up paddle boarding, shooting sports, indoor trampoline parks, indoor skydiving, vaulting on horseback, recreational tree climbing, and zip lining. With over 50 Safety Activity Checkpoints, your girls will definitely find inspiration for their next adventure!
The new Introduction to Safety Activity Checkpoints also provides basic information that you’ll need for any activity, like communicating with parents, keeping plans girl-led, and arranging transportation.
