Be Prepared for Severe Weather – Hazardous Weather Training PDF Print E-mail

Storms at Camp

Scout leaders should always help their Scouts to be prepared for all types of weather. The National Council offers an online weather training called, "Are You Weather Smart?" Click here to go to the Online Learning Center to learn about severe weather safety or begin other training regarding health and safety matters. Floods, lightning, high winds and many other threats are reviewed.

Severe weather cannot be prevented, but Scouts and leaders can be adequately prepared for most situations in the outdoors. The council's summer camp staff and directors of Cub Day Camps receive training on severe weather procedures. At Boy Scout summer camp, a weekly fire drill is conducted to help prepare all campers for possible emergencies. The health and safety of all youth members and adult volunteer leaders is the council's highest priority.
