Upon Acceptance

All scouts must submit the following forms as soon as possible following acceptance.

All Scouts and Adult Leaders accepted to the Honor Guard must have a current BSA Annual Health and Medical form - Parts A, B, & C. Make sure you take this along when you get your yearly physical. Please note, BSA Health Forms are good for one year only. Plan carefully to make sure your form is valid the entire time we are on the Island.
