BSA is changing policy regarding tour plans and is no longer requiring them. A cross-functional team has completed an evaluation of the BSA's Tour and Activity Plan, resulting in a recommendation to terminate the plan effective April 1, 2017. We recognize that those who were using the tool may wish to know why so the following FAQs have been developed.  Please review this document for details regarding tour plans:
