During the month of April, the annual health forms and authorization forms are due.  All Boy Scouts need to do this as well as all Adults who participate in activities.   (Adults – if you are in doubt, complete the forms so that we have them on file in case you decide to go on an outing / activity with the troop.)  The links to the required paperwork can be found on the troop website under the “links” tab on the left, and then clicking on the “Boy Scout Form” link.

Everyone must hand in TWO HARD COPIES of Medical Form A and B  and Medical Insurance card (front and back) – no electronic copies. Form C (two copies) is required only if attending summer camp or high adventure camp.  Please note - if you are attending more than 1 summer camp/high adventure camp, then you will need to submit 3 copies of health forms A,B and C.

Authorization forms require 2 signatures.  You can give the forms to our Membership Chair, Eileen Dufau at a troop meeting, mail them or drop them off at her house.
