A note from Matthew Adams Scout Executive:

September 13, 2016

To: All Registered units of the PA Dutch Council

Re: Clearances for up-coming District Fall activities

We wanted to clarify when a person needs to have the proper clearances for any Fall event that the Council, or the District will be having. Three different scenarios are provided to you for clarification.

  • All Registered members of the PA Dutch Council MUST have clearances in order to attend any Council or District
  • All Non-Registered persons acting as a parent or guardian (NOT SUPERVISING OR WORKING WITH ANY CHILDREN BUT THEIR OWN) do not need clearances.
  • Any person (REGISTERED AND NON-REGISTERED) acting in a leadership position at a Unit, District or Council level event MUST have clearances.
