13 The 3 Goals of Every Media Interaction Position the BSA brand as a credible, leading expert on the subject of youth development and reinforce the values and integrity of the BSA and its brand. Balance the dialogue with non-inflammatory discussion and correct misperceptions, while not allowing others to tell the Scouting story for us. Minimize the severity and quantity of negative discussion during an issue or crisis. 13

14 Crisis Communications Develop Positive key messages: (example Day Camp) –The Great Plains District operates 2 week long day camps in our community and serves over 500 Cub Scouts. –Our purpose is to provide a safe positive Scouting experience for Cub aged boys where they can meet new friends, learn and practice new Scouting skills, in an environment that also encourages physical fitness. 14

15 Crisis Communications – The health and safety of our campers is of paramount importance. Key leadership has been through BSA national training and there is an inspection process during camp. –Our camps are led by parents of the Scouts, community volunteers and guided by Boys Scouts of America council staff. 15
