When young members attend camps, activities and events outside of our weekly meeting parents/guardians need to provide health information and emergency contact details. To prevent the need for this information being provided by you multiples of times throughout the year, we intend to email the relevant sections of this form back to the primary contact prior to events and activities so we can check all health and personal information is current and up to date.

I have provided all of my child’s medical information and my child is fit to participate in the camp / night away.
