scouts-l Mail Archive for March of 2000: Re: Lock-in event policy

Class III medical form is always desirable, of
course, because of the full physical exam and information it contains.
However, it is probably NOT necessary in this case. It certainly
wouldn't be required under the provisions of the Guide to Safe Scouting,
even if "lock-ins" were specifically listed in the Guide. A current
Class I form would be sufficient.
Here's what the Guide says:
Class 1: Includes any event that does not exceed 72 consecutive
hours, where the level of activity is similar to that normally
expended at home or at school, and where medical care is readily
available. Examples: day camp, day hike, swimming party, or an
overnight camp. Medical information required is a current health
history signed by parents or guardian.
Lock-ins would surely fall under those guidelines.
Also, "Waiver" is mis-spelled in a number of locations.
I actually was sending this along from Ben, and picked up the same thing. I
thought the Class 1 form would be quite sufficient, and recommended that
change to him. I didn't re-read it in its entirety before reposting
