Check for Expiring Health Forms this Summer!

Posted on Jul 18 2016 - 9:09am

Please check the expiration date of your Scout's (and parent's) health forms. Camping season is right around the corner and if your scout is planning to attend a campout that lasts more than 72 hours, he will need PART C, a physical signed by his doctor. Health forms expire 13 months from the date signed.

Good news! The statue of a Boy Scout outside the Boy Scouts of America’s national headquarters in Irving, Texas, is a PokéStop! And the excellent National Scouting Museum next door is a Gym, where you can battle your Pokémon against other Pokémon.

Positions of Responsibility

Each Scout must serve at least one position of responsibility for six months as part of rank advancement. In addition to SPL and ASPL there are a number of other positions available. Note that these positions are not just titles - Scouts are expected to be active in these roles and make notable contributions in the leadership area. Learn more about the Positions of Responsibility.
