Medical Forms

All campers, volunteers and staff must have a completed camp medical form on file. Boys will not be allowed to participate in many camp activities without a completed medical form, signed by a licensed health care practioner. Completed forms should be returned to the Nashua Valley Council office no later than June 20, 2014. Returning your son's form early enables the camp health officer to review the form and resolve any missing information before your son arrives at camp. Copies of the form will be mailed to all Cub Scouts in February.

Medications

All medication must be turned in to the camp health officer upon arrival at camp. It must be in its original packaging and must be accompanied by physician's orders. Authorization to administer medication must be given by signing the appropriate section of the camp medical form. Medications may only be administered by the camp health officer. Exceptions may be made for asthma inhalers and similar medications at the discretion of the camp health officer in consultation with parents and physician if necessary.

Help us ensure that camp is a positive experience for your son. Please avoid changing your son's medication or dosage immediately before or during your week at camp.
