NYLT - National Youth Leadership Training
Camp Wakpominee - near Fort Edward, NY
For scouts who are 1st Class by summer might consider attending NYLT this summer.
This program is typically held in late June at Rotary Scout Reservation.
See your Scoutmaster for a recommendation and more details.
**Whichever camp you attend you will need a... Annual BSA Medical Form**
The BSA Annual Medical Form can be found at https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf - only the form with the date 2019 is acceptable (dated in lower right hand corner). Exams must have been completed within the last 12 months before camp (e.g. a July 2022 physical is OK for July camp, but not August camp).
This form MUST be used and MUST be provided to Asst Scoutmaster Mrs. Shekhter, in triplicate before our final meeting in June.
We require three (3) copies in order to meet the demands of the camps for a copy, to retain a copy to be taken on all trips, and to maintain a copy with an emergency contact at home.
Note that these dates CANNOT be changed. The BSA Form, dated 2019 MUST be used. Persons not signing up, paying, and submitting a current BSA medical form by these dates CANNOT attend camp.
Scouts NOT going to Summer Camp –
Scouts not going to summer camp still need an up-to-date BSA Annual Health Form on file with the Troop in order to attend most Scouting events. Therefore, all Scouts MUST provide Mrs. Shekhter with an up-to-date BSA Annual Health Form annually. All Scouts should download the form and complete basic information on your computer, save with basic info, and print. Take printed copy to your doctor. Make three (3) copies. Save one copy. Give the original and two (2) copies to Mrs. Shekhter.
Be sure to check for emails sent to Troop58All for more upcoming information!
