Each Scout and adult leader staying at camp overnight must submit a completed Annual Health and Medical Record 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 regardless of the 72 hour National Policy our Camping Committee requires if more than one day on council property we will require a medical form signed by a physician. 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 Cub World on Montgomery Road to handle any emergency that exceeds the capability of our trained medical staff.

All medications must be kept in locked storage in the First Aid office. 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 Scout's name and unit number and include dosage instructions.
