CAMPOUT PACKING LISTS

Useful packing list options are listed here:

MEDICAL FORMS

The BSA requires that every person attending a campout or outdoor activity (whether they be a Scout, accompanying adult or visitor) is required to complete Sections A and B of form 680-001. We refer this this as “Medical forms A and B”, which you can download from this link:

If you or your Scout is attending a longer term campout and requires form C, then you need to use the “Medical forms A, B and C” link below. Note that page C requires a doctors approval. It is best to call your pediatrician or doctor and ask if they can handle this as an admin task, or if you need to set up an appointment. Each provider has different processes.

ANNUAL DUES

Our Troop Annual Dues are $100.00.

Please use the form below to pay dues online (preferred) or write a check made out to “BSA Troop 841” and hand it to Mr Carnegie.

PRINTABLE EXERCISE SHEET FOR REQUIREMENTS

Below is a useful exercise chart to help the Scouts complete these Rank Advancement requirements:

APPLICATION FORMS

If you are new to Scouts and need to complete a new Membership Application form, please download the appropriate form directly from the Boy Scouts of America website.

SCOUTBOOK

The ScoutBook website is where we log all our Scouts’ advancement and achievements. This is a core part of Scouting which we take care to do seriously and accurately to preserve the value of the Scouting Program.

YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING (YPT)

The safety and security of our Scouts is of paramount importance. It is mandatory for all BSA-registered volunteers and must be repeated every two years. Training courses are accessible through the my.Scouting.org website (see below).

MY.SCOUTING.ORG

my.Scouting,org is a website where you can access training courses for all aspects of the Scouting Program, including the mandatory Youth Protection training courses.
