Summer is just around the corner, which means Church activities will be in full swing. Pioneer treks, youth conferences, Scouting and Young Women camps, and outdoor ward parties will be on the rise—and so will many health and safety concerns.
A May 12th letter from the First Presidency to ward and stake leaders states that “leaders should use good judgment and approve only those activities with a minimal risk for injury or illness. Stake and ward council meetings provide opportunities to prayerfully plan activities and to discuss safety guidelines and safe practices.”
Church leaders should refer to guidelines and safety principles at safety.lds.org to ensure safe Church-sponsored activities.
