If your scout is planning to attend Summer Camp then you will need the following:
Schedule your appointment with your Family Doctor and complete Part C of the Health Form before June of this year
Part C can be found at this address: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf
After you have Part C completed, you will need to return a photocopy of all the documents list above plus Part C in duplicate.
NOTE: You only need to return Part C and duplicates of everything above after your have met with your Family Doctor. All other documents (Part A & B, Vaccination Record and Health Card Photocopy), return that ASAP. In our experience, scheduling your Family Doctor visit as close to June as you can works very well.
Review and Sign Troop 58 Parents Pledge
It takes a lot to effectively run Girl Troop 58. Following Crossover, we will have around 25 scouts and without volunteers we cannot offer a healthy and productive program. While Scouts BSA is lead by the scouts, there is plenty of help needed by the parents and other family members. A small bit of support from you will take help take pressure off other leaders. Please reach out to us for more information and we will also schedule time very soon to review opportunities. Please print this form, sign and return to the troop.
