Digital Safety Guidelines

As local councils and units use digital and online resources, such as video conferencing, to continue Scouting meetings, projects and advancement during the COVID-19 outbreak, the National Council is providing guidance in this BSA Safety Moment that can be shared with anyone who has questions about topics such as video conferencing safety for Scouts and leaders. Note: This guidance is not comprehensive, and if it differs from the legal requirements of your state or local jurisdiction, please consult with your local council attorney.

Topics addressed for conducting online Scouting activities safely include:

  • Follow all Youth Protection policies.
  • Use business-oriented conference platforms instead of platforms with other primary purposes (such as gaming).
  • Do not record online activities/meetings.
  • Safeguard personal information.
  • Collecting personal information from youth under 13 is not recommended.

For full details, view the Safety Moment, which is available publicly on
