What if my son has a medical/ other concerns?
It is very important that the parents of any
Scout with special medical needs or considerations discuss them with the
Scoutmaster or Troop Committee Chair. Such information will be treated
confidentially and shared only to the extent that it is essential to the
affected Scout's safety and that of his fellow Troop members. At campouts, a
Scout requiring medication must give that medication to the Scoutmaster or
other designated adult leader who will keep the medication and will insure it
is properly administered in a timely fashion. Each case is different so early
consultation is important. All scouts must maintain accurate and current
medical records with the Troop. If your son has special dietary requirements,
the Troop will help in any reasonable way it can, but there are limits in what
can be done as camping is inherently "rustic."
