Please see the below information on medical forms necessary for Camp Alexander. According to them and in BOLD in the Leaders Guide is the following.
THE NUMBER ONE BIGGEST HEADACHE FOR UNITS COMING TO CAMP IS NOT HAVING THE MEDICAL AND MEDICATION FORMS COMPLETED CORRECTLY!
Forms are required to be reviewed for accuracy, scanned, and uploaded to the camp electronically ahead of time. We will do this as a unit. PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD FORMS YOURSELF. No more showing up at camp with a stack of forms so we need to have this done early. Let’s make sure this is not an issue for our Troop and I ask that everyone have them completed and turned into the Troop no later than Tuesday, June 13th 2023!
Here is a link to all forms.
Direction and details from Camp Alexander is below.
HEALTH & MEDICAL RECORDS
The State of Colorado and Department of Social Services have strict rules that Camp Alexander must follow. Please read the following section carefully. Each person attending Camp Alexander must have an Annual BSA Health and Medical Record within 12 months arrival at Camp Alexander.
Required Medical Documents:
- BSA Medical Form (Parts A, B1, B2, & C – both youth and adults)
- Copy of Health Insurance Card (both youth and adults)
- Colorado Addendum – Additional Information/Sunscreen Permission Form (youth only)
- Consent to test for COVID-19 (youth only)
- Permission for Medication Administration/Medication Log (only if taking prescription meds.) – must have
permission form completed with signatures. Must be completed for each medication your scout will
take at camp. Fill out the days and times on the log, our staff will complete the log as medications are
administered. (youth only & only if needed)
o Required for any medications (including over-the-counter and supplements)
o Medications Must be in original container
- Colorado Addendum – Contract to Carry emergency Medication (youth only – & only if needed)
The BSA Form must be completed and signed by a medical doctor, M.D., D.O., R.N.P. or P.A./C. These are the
only signatures which the Colorado Department of Social Services will allow to sign the Health Form. Chiropractic doctor, D.P.M. signatures are unacceptable under Colorado Department of Social Services requirements.
On B2 (page 3) of the BSA medical form there is a section where prescription medications are to be listed.
Below the list there are two signature lines: one for a parent and a doctor. A parent signature is required
even if NO medications are listed and the parents must check either yes or no for over-the counter
medications (ex. Tylenol, ibuprofen).
NO OTHER FORMS CAN BE ACCEPTED! It is the Scout’s parents responsibility to supply a BSA Health and
Medical record before camp admittance. All Scouts and adult leaders are required to participate in a medical
check with the Camp Alexander Medical Staff upon check-in. Scouts without a completed BSA Health and
Medical record, including signatures, by 4:00 PM Monday must be picked up that evening by a parent, or
taken home by unit leadership. Failure to provide a completed BSA Health and Medical record is not an
exception to our refund policy.
