Medical Forms for the Hike and Summer Camp

Posted by gretchenriess on Jun 14 2016 - 12:11am

Medical Forms

Please provide updated medical forms (Adults and Scouts) for the Summer Camp in July. You will need Forms A, B and C.  The doctor signs off on Form C.  They may want to see all parts of the form to sign off on Part C, so send the entire form to the doctor’s office to save some yourself some time. 

For the upcoming hike, adults and scouts need Forms A and B on file with the Troop, if you haven’t already submitted an updated form for 2016.  If your form from last year is dated June 2015 or later, you should be good until the end of June.  

*Important hike info meeting Thurs! All hikers and parents attend! *Training hike Saturday!*

Posted by gretchenriess on Jun 13 2016 - 11:46pm

**All Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail Hikers  and their parents! Please make every effort to attend this Thursday's meeting. We will be going over some final details about the hike which is just over a week away. We will be distributing a final 'essential packing list', the menu that the Troop wil be providing (dinner and breakfast) and what food you and your scout will need to pack (lunch and snacks). We will be discussing what other scout(s) you  will be buddying up with to share a stove, distribute pack weight, sleeping arrangements in the shelters, etc.

**ANY SCOUT THAT DID NOT ATTEND THE TRAINING HIKE LAST WEDNESDAY PLEASE BRING THEIR FULLY PACKED BACKPACKS FOR INSPECTION AND PROPER FIT**

**We will be holding our final training hike this Saturday (time to be determined-but most likely close to noon) @ Boyce Mayview Park** Again, for any scout or adult attending the hike that has not been on a training hike, especially the last one where we hiked with a full pack please make every effort to attend Saturday and bring your full pack. We will hike 2-3 miles.  This is so get a feel for the packs and make sure they  are fitting properly.
