Have you been confused as to which medical form your scout needs? Well, they have streamlined the website in order to ease some of the confusion.
Remember, not just scouts need the proper medical form. Every adult that goes to camp needs one as well, whether you are a scout leader, parent, attending a full week, or only a portion of day camp.
Webelos 2′s who have only attended camps that are less than 72 consecutive hours will need to update their medical forms as they cross over to their new troops. They will now need to have a physical and physicians signature when they attend summer camp. If you also play school sports, you may consider combining your scout physical (needed every 12 months) with your sports physical (most are good for 2 years). Some insurance that do cover physicals will only cover 1 per year…and some doctors will fill out both forms and only bill as one physical.
A tip for preparing for your physical…
- fill out all but the doctors portion of your physical online, then print it out the entire form to take to your appointment
Your doctor will appreciate having the majority of the form filled out. As an added bonus…it will be much easier to read your medical form in the event that you would need to use it.

We are very proud that all of our Ft. Clatsop District scout units have worked very hard to provide a quality program for our local youth. Our district has done quite well this year in many categories, including Friends of Scouting, training and camping.

We would like to thank each pack for attending the district pinewood derby this weekend. As with every derby, we will have a derby discussion at the next roundtable in order to plan any changes you would like for next years derby.
We would like to have input from EACH pack in the district.
Over the next few weeks, please speak with the families in your packs about the following…what they thought worked well, what they would like to improve, any changes they would like to see. Each pack should plan to have their pack derby chairman or other adult in attendance so they can have input in next years derby. We will be discussing rules, check in procedures and general operating of the derby.
District roundtable will be held at the 1st Lutheran Church on 33rd in Astoria on Thursday, March 13th at 7pm.
