It is one of the larger troops in Central Texas and during its existence has produced more than 125 Eagle Scouts.

Summer Camp Medical Forms: New Information About Required Colorado Form

Posted on May 24 2018 - 2:00pm
We have updated information about the Colorado Immunization Form and a reminder about all the medical preparations for Summer Camp. See below. Once these forms are complete, please give the original forms to our medical coordinator, Mr. Paul Youngdale. He can be reached at youngdale3@gmail.com. For privacy, we recommend handing them to him personally (email is not secure). Mr. Youngdale will help us verify the completeness of your forms and make the copies we will take to Colorado . 
  • BSA Parts A, B and C (blank forms), the Scouts Annual Health and Medical Record, are required. If desired, see the FAQs about the AHMR. 
    • Part B (with signature area highlighted) - General Information/Health History. BDSR requires the medical signature on this page. It must be completed and signed within 90 days of camp (April 23 or later).
    • Part C (with signature area highlighted) - Physical examination. Requires medical signature and must have been completed within 12 months of camp. 
    • Check to see if Tetanus (DTaP, DT, Td or Tdap) is up to date. If the last tetanus vaccination occurred before July 23, 2008, get a new tetanus shot. 
  • Colorado Immunization Form (key areas highlighted): All youth attending Summer Camp in Colorado must have this form (blank form) completely filled out and signed as part of their medical form submission. 
    • Healthcare Provider Documentation Date: Date all shots were completed. Use your best guess. 
    • Lab Verification Date: Date vaccine was produced. You may not have this. If you do not, say "unknown."
    • Individual authorized to take the Scout from camp if different from the parent or guardian: Important! Please state "Any present leader." This is very important, as we do not want just one adult at camp authorized to take your scout off site in the event of an emergency. 
  • Medications that a scout takes to camp must be in the original packaging and must not have expired. Check to see if inhalers, etc. might be expiring before July 22 (when camp and return travel are over), and request replacements as needed.
