Permission Slips for Church Activities for Youth

Postby bobbychyldd » Wed Sep 09, 2015 9:25 am

I'm trying to discern the statement made in the scout LDS handbook on using Permission slips for activities. It is written in a somewhat confusing way and can be taken to mean two things: Either we fill out a church permission slip AND a scout permission slip for every activity OR we fill out the appropriate one depending on the activity.

Can someone clarify on this. It looks like they are the exact same thing in terms of warnings and permissions, but I wasn't sure if the church needs to be protected as well as BSA on all activities, or if the church will accept a BSA permission slip as coverage also.

It'll likely be best to engage with the High Councilman and Stake Presidency member over Scouting in your stake for clarification.

If it is a BSA activity you only need BSA permission slip. If it is a Young Men's outing you should use the church permission slip.
