Tour Plans are not required for District and Council Events. They are encourage but may be difficult to complete since a Webelos den may not have Baloo Training, Hazardous Weather Etc.
For your reference.
Q. When do I need to complete a tour and activity plan?
A. Times when a tour and activity plan must be submitted for council review include the following:
§ Trips of 500 miles or more; or
§ Trips outside of council borders (exception: not to your council-owned property); or
§ Trips to Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, Philmont Scout Ranch, Summit Bechtel Reserve (you will be asked to present a copy of your tour and activity plan upon arrival), national Scout jamboree, National Order of the Arrow Conference, or a regionally sponsored event; or
§ When conducting any of the following activities outside of council or district events:
§ Aquatics activities (swimming, boating, floating, scuba, etc.)
§ Climbing and rappelling
§ Orientation flights (process flying plan)
§ Shooting sports
§ Any activities involving motorized vehicles as part of the program (snowmobiles, boating, etc.); or
§ At a council’s request (Contact your local council for additional guidelines or regulations concerning tour and activity plans; many have set guidelines for events or activities within council boundaries such as for Cub Scout overnight camping.)
Regardless, the tour and activity plan is an excellent tool that should be included in preparation for all activities, even those not requiring it. It guides a tour leader through itineraries, travel arrangements, two-deep leadership, supervision qualifications, and transportation.
