Summer Camp Stuff!!!
Make sure you have Scout Physical’s completed. Download, print and bring this exact form to your doctor. No other physical form will be accepted. Parts A, B and C must be completed. Scout’s that do not have this filled out and signed by their medical provider will not go to summer camp. Download your physical form here: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/
The next most important priority is to schedule and get your scout physicals completed using the BSA Physical Form. YOU MUST USE ONLY THIS FORM to go to summer camp. Any other form will not work. Your medical provider MUST SIGN PART C of this form. The Parent will fill out Part A and B.
In addition to a physical, you must fill out this Colorado Addendum form. Here the URL incase the link doesn’t work: http://www.bsacoloradoadventure.org/document/colorado-health-form-addendum/120741
