Camp A requires the Colorado Boy Scout Camps Health & Medical Record form.
All medications & Supplements MUST be in the original container, marked with the campers name and Troop number. No large bottles, please
Scout will carry these to camp in a clearly labeled zip-top bag in his day pack (NOT the foot locker).
Once at camp, ALL medication and supplements will be kept at the Health Lodge.
Scouts will be allowed to carry ONLY approved rescue inhalers and epi-pens.
Send only enough medication for the time they will be away plus a couple of days.
Must have a doctor’s written permission or prescription for ALL prescription drugs and supplements - must be specific and items in the original container.
Over-the-counter items like aspirin, Tylenol, etc should not be sent – the camp has these.
The camp will follow the prescription, so be sure dosages are correct.
All prescription and over-the-counter medication will be locked up and distributed to the Scout at specific times during the day.
Scouts cannot carry or keep in their locker any medication other than camp-approved rescue inhalers and epi-pens.
If a Scout has ANY medical problems they must be discussed with the SM & PA prior to departure. This includes pre-existing injuries, problems traveling, and medication in route.
Sunscreen & Hydration
Sunscreen, lip balm, a hat are required and must be used.
Scouts who loose their troop hat will be required to purchase one ($15).
Dehydration is a major problem in this climate and altitude. Scouts must drink plenty of water.
Please, no letters or notes and no phone calls.
If you think your child may be prone to home sickness let PA know, but don’t let him see YOU cry at the bus.
Each MB has it’s own special notes/equipment/additional costs. A complete set of program notes is on T1000 website “Summer Camp Merit badge Forms” – Please read it!
Individual Scout MB schedules have been electronically submitted to Camp A
Scouts will start getting their schedules at the Pioneering/Family Campout
Fridays are used as make-up days
Handicraft SessionsHandicraft sessions run for two days (Mon – Tues and Wed – Thurs, Fri make up). The MB sign up software would only let us sign up for one handicraft MB per time slot. On Wednesday scouts will be able to sign up for another handicraft MB.An ambitious scout could actually complete all three handicraft MBs (Leatherwork, Basketry, Woodcarving)
At the end of summer camp, Camp A gives each Troop a spreadsheet listing scouts and a record of their MB completions and partials
Completed Camp A MB records will go directly to Troop Advancement Chair and then MBs will be awarded at the next COH
Scouts earning partial MBs will receive Blue Card after camp
All T1000 sponsored MBs will be as normal:
PA issues blue card > Scout works on MB > T1000 counselor signs Blue Card > Scout submits Blue card to Advancement Chair >
MB awarded at COH
