We can officially broaden our horizons...
International Travel Ban Lifted:
BSA's ban on international travel has been lifted. As your units prepare to travel internationally please have them refer to https://www.scouting.org/international/events/ for resources on planning an international trip.
Procedures for International Visitors Attending BSA Events:
Several councils have had international Scouts and units reach out to them requesting to attend events and summer camps in the US. There are several items that should be completed prior to their approval to attend. The most important step is obtaining a roster of those planning to attend your camp or event. Once you have obtained the roster please send to [email protected]. The International Department will contact the National Scout Organization (NSO) to verify that those attending are in good standing with their NSO. Each attendee 18 or older will also need to complete the BSA’s Youth Protection training.
