Safety Activity Checkpoints provides the standard safety guidelines for Girl Scouts of the USA and council approved activities. In addition to providing volunteers with safety guidelines to ensure the physical and emotional safety of girls, information is also included throughout SACs to ensure equity, diversity, and inclusive thinking when planning Girl Scout activities so all girls with a desire to participate are included.
