Troop 48 Update - 2/16/18

Posted on Fri, Feb 16, 2018

March Campout $25 Fee due this Tuesday

Our March campout will be Scout skills practice at Jordan Ranch on March 2-4 to prepare for Camporee. The $25 campout fee is due this Tuesday, so please sign up by the deadline.

 

VERY IMPORTANT – Health forms due this Tuesday

Health and Medical Records for Scouts and Adults – Forms due February 20 and April 24

  • Every Scout and Leader must have a completed Annual Health and Medical Record (health form) submitted to our health & safety officer (Mr. Ralph) annually. This includes Parts A, B and C. Those who are taking medication are required to fill out the medications section of Part B. All medications, including over-the-counter vitamins or supplements, are required to be on the list.
  • Forms can be found at this link: www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf Please use this form because only the 2014, or newer Annual Health and Medical Record will be accepted at camp.
  • Give updated 2018 Parts A and B to assistant Scoutmaster Richard Ralph NO LATER THAN 2/20/18 and Part C to assistant Scoutmaster Richard Ralph NO LATER THAN 4/24/18. Please let Mr. Ralph know in advance if you cannot meet these deadlines. Part C must be signed by a physician or nurse practitioner, so make your appointments now.
  • All scouts, leaders and dads attending Summer Camp, Summer Adventure or any Trip lasting longer than 72 hours will be required to complete Part C which requires a physical and must be signed by a certified and licensed health-care provider, as well as provide a copy of their insurance card.
  • Please TURN IN (2) COPIES of Parts A, B and C to Mr. Ralph and also keep a copy for your home records. This allows Mr. Ralph to send copies in advance to the Camp Nurse and still have a copy in his possession for quick reference. 
  • Most frequent mistakes in filling out the Health Forms:
    • Scout and/or parent does not sign the forms (Scouts must sign Part A and Parents must sign Parts A and B)
    • No copy of insurance card (Need copy of front and back)
    • No immunization record on Part B (Separate printout is acceptable)
    • Lines left blank (You must designate at least one adult to transport your Scout on Part A)
  • Save your own health form electronically in a secure place, so each year it is easy to update, but do not email health forms.
  • Those who have not turned in completed Health Forms by the deadlines stated above will not be eligible to attend campouts until the completed health forms are provided to Mr. Ralph.
  • If prescriptions/conditions change or are added throughout the year, please let Mr. Ralph know as soon as possible so he can update the forms. These forms are only as good as the information on them!
