When Do I Need Face to Face Youth Protection Training?

by Linda Dieguez for the Alamo Area BSA: December 12, 2016 

State of Texas Requirements (Online Versus In-Person Training).

The State of Texas requires all adults attending day camps and resident camps / summer camps to take the Texas-approved BSA in-person Youth Protection Training (YPT) classroom course.  YPT cards from the the in-person Texas-approved YPT Course are good for 2 years and meet all BSA YPT requirements.  The YPT classroom course must be taken within two years of attending camp. 

The BSA ONLINE course may not be used for summer camps and day camps in the state of Texas.  (Note that this state requirement applies only to adults attending summer camps and day camps in the state of Texas and does NOT apply to unit weekend camping.)

The following are events hosted by the Alamo Area Council that require the in-person YPT classroom course:

  • Day Camp and Twilight Camp
  • Webelos Outdoor Adventure Camp
  • Cub Scout Resident Camp
  • Boy Scout Summer Camp
  • National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
