Boy Scout Summer Camp Health & Medical Form Update
We have been receiving numerous questions regarding the updated Annual BSA Health & Medical Record. As you may know, the new form is 13 pages in length, however, only parts A, B, & C are required for summer camp at Camp Rotary or Paul Bunyan Scout Reservation. Part D is required for participation in BSA's High Adventure activities at Philmont, Sea Base, or Northern Tier. Please make sure that ALL information requested in Parts A, B, & C is completed.
Part A - This section contains the basic general information, health insurance, health history, allergies, & medications information.
Part B - This section contains information regarding Informed Consent, & a Hold Harmless Release Agreement - Included in this section is the "Permission to Treat" language which authorizes a medical provider to treat in an emergency. This section also contains information regarding "Adults Authorized To Take Youth To And From Events" - which takes the place of the "Camper Release Form" required in previous years. Please make sure PARENTS LIST THEMSELVES if they will not be in attendance at summer camp.
Part C - This section is the actual physical examination to be performed by a Health Care Provider (certified & licensed physician, nurse practitioner, and physician's assistants). Sports physicals are NOT permitted as a substitute. If you exceed the "maximum weight for height" as outlined in the reference chart found in Part C, & your Health Care Provider is reluctant to sign the form, please have them review the "height/weight disclaimer" found at the top of Part C in the boxed-in area - Both Camp Rotary & Paul Bunyan Scout Reservation are within 30 minutes of an "emergency vehicle-accessible roadway" & both camps have letters of agreement on file with our local ambulance providers requiring a 30 minute or less response time.
