Next outing - Advancement Campout

Posted on Aug 29 2016 - 4:30pm

Hey Scouts - still need those last few requirements to move up before the Court of Honor in October?  We have you covered.  The weekend of September 17 and 18th, the Troop is holding an advancement campout.  Many of you are very close to moving to the next level, so this could put you over the top on our next step to Eagle.

BSA Health Form Revised Again

Posted on Mar 14 2013 - 1:38pm

The Annual Health and Medical Record form has been revised again.  The latest revision is dated 09/2012.  Please begin using the new form immediately.  The form comes in two parts, Parts A - C are required for any outing over 72 hours in length, including summer camp.  Part D is an informational packet for parents and physicians with respect to Scouts attending a high adventure camp.  For those Scouts attending Philmont, you need to have Parts A - C completed and Part D for your physician (parents should also review Part D as it explains some of the medical concerns related to high adventure camps).  Philmont is using the current national version of the form attached to this Announcement.  You can find both parts of the new version of the form on our website in the Files section and attached to this Announcement as well as a document published by the BSA with frequently asked questions regarding the form.  In case we have any families with religious, philosophical or medical objections to vaccinations and immunizations, I have also uploaded a copy of the Immunization Exemption Request form published by the BSA.  You can also find these forms on-line at www.scouting.org.
