Health and Medical Records for Scouting Activities

The Scouting adventure, camping trips, high-adventure excursions, and having fun are important to everyone in Scouting—and so is your safety and well-being. Completing the Annual Health and Medical Record is the first step in making sure you have a great Scouting experience.

What’s Required?

Completed Annual Health and Medical Records are required for anyone participating in a Scouting event or activity. The required parts of the Annual Health and Medical Record depend upon the nature and duration of the activity.

Where Do I Submit My Forms?

The South Texas Council’s risk management policies mandate the collection of Annual Health and Medical Record Forms from all participants at any overnight and/or outdoor council event or activity. These forms may be submitted by mail or in person to Flournoy Service Center prior to the event or activity, or at the event site upon check-in. Due to the nature of the information collected on these forms, we traditionally do not accept e-mail submissions.

Please note that a brief review of your health history and/or a non-invasive on-site evaluation may be necessary in order to participate in certain activities.

Will The Forms Be Returned After the Event?

Forms collected by the South Texas Council will be returned by the event organizer or the event health officer upon the conclusion of the event. Medical records may not be collected until the conclusion of the event or until the individual completes the event check-out process. We still recommend that Scouts and volunteers keep a master copy of their Annual Health and Medical Record and submit a copy of this master for each activity.
