BSA Annual Health and Medical Record (AHMR)
In order for anyone, adult or Scout, to participate in BSA activities, the troop must have on file an updated BSA Annual Health and Medical Record (AHMR), which has three parts: Part A, B1, B2, and C. Full information on the AHMR can be found here: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/
For activities that are fewer than 72 hours long (hikes, weekend trips), Parts A and B are required, along with a copy of both sides of your insurance card: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_AB.pdf
For activities that are longer than 72 hours (summer camp, high adventure camps), Parts A, B, and C are required, along with both sides of your insurance card: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf
TIPS ON FILLING OUT:
- Part A: Be sure both Participant and Parent/Guardian has signed and dated
- Part B1: Don't forget to attach a copy of both sides of insurance card
- Part B2: Immunization Record must include dates. Attaching a printout from your doctor is fine.
- Part C: This must be completed by a doctor, who must sign and date under "Examiner's Certification." Your AHMR will expire at the end of the month one year after that date (e.g., if it is dated 6/13/18, it will expire at the end of June 2019).
