Medical Form Update Required for both camps

Posted by robertgates on Jun 8 2018 - 9:37am
ALL of the below listed forms are REQUIRED for your son to attend camp this summer: 
1. Medical Form A 
2. Medical Form B (two different pages - we need both)
3. Medical Form C - signed by a doctor
4. last tetanus shot date or vaccine form from the doctor
5. A copy of the front and back of the insurance card 
Give Lisa three (3) copies of each of the above per person.  One goes to camp and two stay in the master file. 
Please don't email the forms.  Ensure they are completely filled out and signed.  At the camps they go over every single one and the Troop can't check in until all are validated as complete.
Bring them to the Swim Check this Saturday or drop them off at Lisa Whitlaw's house.

FOR WOODRUFF - All Scouts & Adults attending will need current parts A / B / C with a date AFTER 6/17/2017
FOR SKYMONT - All Scouts attending will need current parts A / B / C with a date AFTER 7/15/2017
If you have questions please email Lisa Whitlaw via lwhitlaw@yahoo.com and she will assist
This is the link for the medical form (*you need to make 3 copies of packet)
For Philmont the A / B / C are the same but for reference there is a High Adventure risk advisory:  
T525 Summer Camp Forms & Information/ Packing list are here: https://www.troop525.org/node/1124
There is NO flexibility.  Without an updated medical form that individual doesn't leave the parking lot with the Troop. Camp will turn them back and not allow them to even check in.

If your son will be attending camp at Woodruff this summer, then please attend the pre-camp meeting 6:30-7:30 pm on Tuesday, June 5 at the Simpsonwood UMC parking lot.

Here is a link to what we will be covering during the meeting.

Camp shirts will be passed out during this meeting.

   - Tentmate Selections - All tents will have two scouts each.  The leaders will pair up any remaining scouts on 6/6/2018.

A couple of other things to attend to:
