BSA has created a new version of the Annual Health and Medical Record (AHMR). The new form is designed to be a universal medical form for all scouts and adults, and is valid at and required for all Scouts attending any BSA camp (e.g., summer camp, NYLT, Philmont, or any high adventure). It is also required for participation on Troop outings.
IMPORTANT FOR THIS YEAR:
All medical forms completed on any version of the AHMR, other than the one accessible below, expired on April 1, 2015. All AHMR forms used on or after April 1, 2015 MUST be the latest version.
BSA requires that this official form be completed, in its entirety, every 12 months. Troop 599 will require that this form be completed every spring. Because of the detailed information required by this form, we cannot accept copies of school and sports physical forms or any other doctor created forms.
Parents, please note that you and/or the doctor must complete this form in its entirety. The immunization section must be completely filled out or it will be returned to you. You may not write "see last year" or merely include a separate copy of the doctor's immunization records as a separate page. The section must be completed.
Also note that copies of your insurance card must be included with the completed form.
Finally, the forms require that your signature on the Troop 599 Notarization Supplement (page 2) be notarized. Don Vickery is a notary and will try to be available at most troop meetings to notarize documents at no cost to you.
With the new AHMR form, BSA has eliminated the Part D High Adventure Supplement. Instead, information sheets with risk advisories have been provided by each of BSA's National High Adventure Bases.
Scouts planning on attending a high adventure at Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, Philmont Scout Ranch, or the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve are advised to print off the corresponding info sheet(s) and take them with them to their physical examination.
Florida Sea Base requires the PADI medical form (below) for all SCUBA participants in addition to the BSA AHMR.
