Health Forms - Every Scout and adult going to Yawgoog must have a BSA health form or they will not be allowed to stay on the Reservation. Health forms and troop rosters must be furnished upon check in Sunday afternoon. The health form must be filled out completely, including the following, listed below. a. Parental Signature - For those under 18 years of age, this gives us the approval for emergency treatment or surgery in the case of an accident or serious illness. b. Doctor’s Signature - Each Scout and adult must have a medical exam given within 12 months of going to camp. No examinations will be given at camp. Many health care offices will only provide a printout from their office rather than fill out part c of the BSA health form. This form is acceptable as a substitute for the Doctor filling out that potion of the health form. This can be stapled to the BSA form c. Health and Restriction Information - Include all information relating to the individual’s health, including medications, restrictions, allergies and other pertinent information.
d. Health Insurance Information - Be sure to include the insurance carrier and policy number on the health form. e. Vaccination Information - A current (within 10 years) polio series and tetanus shot is necessary and should be noted on the health form. If a Scout or leader has an examination form from another source, we will accept it as the examination portion only. Fill out a standard health form completely, with the exception of the physician’s portion, and attach to the bottom of the other form. This allows the treatment record to be the back page.
