Medical Forms and Procedures
Each Scout and adult leader staying at camp overnight must submit a completed Annual Health and Medical Form upon arrival to camp. Parts A, B, and C of this form must be completed. This form requires a health history, parent or guardian signature, and a medical examination signed by a licensed physician within the last 12 months. This is the only form that can be accepted - school or sports medical forms cannot take the place of the BSA form. Note: This is the new BSA medical form, the old "Class 1, 2, 3" forms can no longer be accepted.

Precautions for the safety of all Scouts and Leaders are paramount in the development of our programs and facilities. In the event medical needs arise while you are in camp, our Health and First Aid Facilities are available with qualified personnel on duty 24 hours a day. Additionally, we have an agreement with Bethesda North Hospital, located 7 miles from Camp Friedlander on Montgomery Road to handle any emergency that exceeds the capability of our trained medical staff.
All medications must be kept in locked storage by the unit. Storage boxes and medication logs are available at camp from the medical officer. A designated unit leader may be responsible for dispensing medications under the guidance of the Camp Health Officer. Certain lifesaving medications may be carried by a camper at camp; this decision will be made during the medical exam given by our health officers. All medications should be brought to camp in a zip-lock bag labeled with the Scouts's name and unit number and include dosage instructions.
