Medical Guidelines for Camps

The following information can be downloaded here as a PDF file

⚕ All participants must complete the BSA Annual Health and Medical Record Parts A & B for camp attendance. If that attendance lasts over 72 hours, Part C must be completed by a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. Per BSA National policy, no substitute exam form will be accepted.

⚕ For compliance with mandated requirements by the State of California and Los Angeles County Public Health Depts, the following immunizations must be completed before attendance at camp: tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, pertussis, diphtheria, polio, and chicken pox. Other immunizations are encouraged. Requests for immunization exemption on the basis of personal or religious beliefs will not be accepted.

⚕ Participants are not allowed to bring to camp any pets with the exception of a certified service dog. Prior permission to bring a service dog to camp is determined by the Scout Executive.

⚕ While our Health Lodges have a limited supply of basic medicines, participants must bring all their necessary medications, including EpiPens, Inhalers, insulin, etc. In situations requiring care beyond what our Medical Staff can provide, a participant may be transported to health facilities offering high levels of care.
