Unit accident insurance is available through local councils. Information is available through the local council and is typically included in unit charter renewal kits. The coverage must be applied for by the unit.
This plan provides accident medical expenses and accidental death and dismemberment while participating in any approved or supervised scouting activity, including going to and from meetings. New members are automatically covered under the plan until the renewal date. Non-scouts attending scheduled activities (including group travel to and from such activities) for the purpose of being encouraged to participate in Scouting are also automatically covered. However, the plan does not cover Parents, siblings or other guests.
