    As far as I know every troop that attends summer camp here provides a binder with all the medical forms included. I LOVE the idea of scouts keeping track of their own medical forms. Do you put them all in a single binder when you collect them. I am managing the medical forms for our troop of about 40 scouts. It is a nightmare getting ready for camp. I screen the forms and we get them pre screened before camp bu the camp director and still have issues. Doctors not dating the forms, kids bringing expired medication, putting "just in case" medication on the form and not bringing it to camp. I email the parents at the beginning of the scout year with the status of their scout's medical form and then again the month they expire. I have people argue with me that the Dr does not have to sign the form if the parent did, the scout doesn't have to sign the form because he is under 18 so it isn't legally binding anyways, even one ASM tell me that he had a tetanus vaccination sometime in the 90's and that was the best I was going to get.
