There's been a lot of discussion about having health forms at camporees and
I don't see what the big deal is. We've made up a looseleaf binder of
health forms we have at all campouts and activities.
Instead of punching holes in the forms we use those plastic sleeves so it's
easy to pull one out for an added signature, etc. We can also slide in any
supplemental information, medication cards, or whatever so each kid's
paperwork is all together. Since we have everything we don't have to check
that we have the correct health form--we have them all.
We've also got a sleeve for the Troop's insurance paperwork so everything's
all together. At summer camp we just deposit the binder in the health
lodge which makes things easy for the camp staff.
Not having these forms with you on a campout is just dumb. You probably
won't use them but you have to "Be Prepared".
