Adult Scout Ratio Policy
Attached is a copy of our adult to scout ratio policy
We have made this into policy and requrie that we maintain this ratio of scouts to adults. If we do not have enough adults to maintain the policy, then we cancel the event.
We require our adults to take the on-line youth protection course and log their completion in troop master. We do count 18 year olds as an adult to support the ratio. We have several of our older scouts who have turned 18 and want to stay with the program as an ASM.
Note - The numbers are what we have found work for our troop. Your troop may be different. The lesson learned here is that we needed a higher ratio or percentage of adults to scouts as the scout numbers increased.
