Who can access a youth's general, medical and emergency information in MyScouts?
When your child is registered with a group their information can be viewed by the group's Group Commissioner, members of the Group Committee and the Scouters running the section your youth is in.
When should parents and Scouters update general, medical and emergency information in MyScouts?
Parents are asked to complete their youth's MyScouts information when they first register. This information is saved in MyScouts from the time they register. Best practice is for parent's to ensure their youth's information is up to date annually, if your child has an adventure coming up this is a good time to double check and ensure everything in their account is up to date.
If you are particularly concerned about important information included in your child's MyScouts account please take the extra step of speaking with Scouters in addition to maintaining up to date information in our system.
