Summer Camp 2018

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: http://www.scouting.org/ lestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf 

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. I would like to collect all Physicals by June 13th.

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

Starting July 1, 2016, parents/guardians seeking non-medical (religious or personal belief) exemptions for pre- kindergarten children attending child care or preschool must submit non-medical exemption forms at each age when required vaccines are due: 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months and 18 months of age. Medical exemptions only need to be submitted once and require the signature of your child’s doctor or advanced practice nurse. To submit a non-medical or medical exemption, go to www.colorado.gov/vaccineexemption and follow the instructions. Children with an exemption may be kept out of child care or preschool during a disease outbreak.

Parents may have questions or want more information about children’s immunizations and vaccine safety. Resources for parents about the safety and importance of vaccines are available at: www.ImmunizeForGood.com and www.colorado.gov/cdphe/immunization-education.

Merit Badge Stuff!!!

Please check out the merit badge options on Page 13 of the program guide.  Please choose what Merit Badges that your scout would want to take and make sure they fit into the schedule.
