Tour & Activity Plans are Back Online
The new ONLINE Tour and Activity Plan has replaced the old Tour Plan.
Registered leaders are now able to submit their Tour and Activity Plans online by going to www.MyScouting.org and selecting Tour and Activity Plan from the menu on the left hand side (see the image to the right).
With this new system up and running, the paper tour plans are no longer used. While the council will accept the paper forms during the month of May, all units should be using the online system.
Prior to a Tour and Activity Plan beeing entered, be sure that all of the red and yellow shaded items are addressed. Once these items have been cleared, your Tour and Activity Plan is complete. It will be reviewed at the council office, but unless you are contacted about your plan, you are done.
Common Mistakes and Misconceptions
An informative training video has been developed on how to use the new Tour and Activity Plan application is available below. The Tour and Activity Plan FAQ page may also be viewed by clicking here. Please contact with any questions or concerns.

Please allow 21 days for review of your Tour and Activity Plan
Tour and Activity Plans submitted without complete information may not be approved. As stated above the online Tour and Activity Plan submission process is the expected method for GLC units to submit their plans for review. The link for online submissions is found on the MyScouting.org page under Unit Tools. Questions or problems accessing the MyScouting.org site should be directed to the National Help Desk at 972.580.2267.
Sending in your tour plan on the day of departure is risky; it does not afford enough time to correct errors and may result in your trip being delayed due to an unapproved tour plan.
Once your Tour and Activity Plan has been completed online, with any red and yellow shaded items cleared, your Plan is considered approved UNLESS YOU ARE CONTACTED BY THE GLC OFFICE.
