The medical form link on the Camp Rotary page of the wesite was out of date. This 2012 english/spanish version is no longer accepted by BSA. If you have done that form you need to have it redone on the new one. That link has been removed. Here is the proper form.  BSA Health and Medical Record

Reminder on New Rank Requirements for 2016

Posted on May 23 2016 - 11:27am

As many of you know, BSA has instituted new rank requirements starting this year.  I have uploaded a breakdown of the changes, as well as a print-out that may be inserted into older scoutbooks for rank advancement.  The links for these two documents are below.  As you'll see, the changes are not earth shattering.  For 2016 only, scouts who were not yet First Class as of December 31, 2015 may continue using the old requirements through First Class rank.  Scouts First Class and above as of December 31, 2015 may work on the next rank only under the old requirements.  Subsequent advancement must be under the new requirements.  Any scout who joins in 2016 must adhere to the new requirements from the start.
