LDS Scouting Handbook updated

This just in, LDS Scouters: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has updated its Scouting Handbook.

The May 2012 version of the document, only available online (PDF), offers updates on “guidelines and policies relating to Scouting programs in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” according to the document’s introductory section.

This handbook isn’t meant to replace the handbook for each individual Scouting program. Instead, it outlines “differences between Church policy and BSA policy.”

“Bishoprics and Young Men, Primary, and Scouting leaders should be familiar with this information as they administer Scouting programs in the ward.”

Sections include:

  • Training and Development
  • Stake Leaders’ Responsibilities for Scouting
  • Ward Leaders’ Responsibilities for Scouting
  • Scouting in the Aaronic Priesthood
  • Scouting in Primary
  • Awards and Recognition
  • Church Policies
