Newest BSA Medical Form

Posted by jbungerspiecha on May 26 2020 - 7:58pm

Regardless of whether we attend camp this summer or not, a BSA medical form is required to be filled out annually (not coincidentally, the formal name of the form is "Annual Health and Medical Record").  It recently changed for 2020.  Please use the newest one when filling one out for the troop. https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf  The easiest time to get AB and C filled out is out your well-child checkup.  C is required for events lasting more than 72 hours.  This can be a long trip or something like NYLT that spans multiple weekends.

Summer Camp Update

Posted by jbungerspiecha on May 2 2020 - 11:02pm

As many of you have probably already heard, Cradle of Liberty Council has made the decision to close Resica Falls Scout Reservation for all weeks of summer camp. The announcement can be found here https://resicafalls.org/coronavirus. This just happened this past Friday so the troop leadership does not yet have answers to many of the questions you probably have. Stay tuned.
