Safety Activity Checkpoints
From archery, to hayrides, to skateboarding, we have a convenient checklist for you to follow to make sure girls have fun and stay safe at the same time. Safety Activity Checkpoints are lists of all the things for you to remember (and check off) when preparing for an activity with the girls in your troop.
