New Simplified Annual Health and Medical Record

In preparation for the summer camp season, the BSA is rolling out a new, simplified Annual Health and Medical Record effective March 1, 2014.

Thanks to many employees and volunteers who provided constructive feedback on how we could make the record easier to use while still collecting the information needed to make sure our Scouts are ready for their experience.


Some of the key updates are:

  • The primary version will be in English. The existing bilingual version will remain available.
  • Part A (Informed Consent, Release Agreement, and Authorization) will contain no medical information and will be shorter by one page.
  • Part B (General Information/Health History) will include only the most important information needed.
  • Part C (Pre-Participation Physical) will be reduced to one page with expanded sections for explanations of allergies.
  • Supplemental Risk Advisory (former Part D) will be shortened and be location specific. This is designed to take to physicians so they will better understand what activities their patients will participate in.
  • A redesign of the landing page for the annual health and medical record website so participants and parents will be able to download only what they need.
