Policies and Procedures
Below is a selected list of our policies and procedrues. A more detailed list can be found in the Leader's Guidebook.
- Every participant must provide a copy of their annual health and medical form to be kept on file after they leave. Parts A, B & C are to be completed annually and signed by a licensed physician. Campers staying less than 72 consecutive hours can omit part C.
- To speed up check-in, you may send copies (NOT originals) of all medical forms to camp two weeks prior to your arrival.
- State law requires all medication to be turned in at medical checks (during the check-in process) to the Health Officer in the original prescription labeled container. To ensure a faster check-in have a Scout medication form already filled out for each scout taking medication.
- Bee sting medication, inhalers, an insulin syringe or other medication or device used in the event of life-threatening situations may be carried by a camper or staff member but should be brought to medical checks.
- The above requirements are those of the State of Wisconsin and the Boy Scouts of America.
