Annual Health & Medical Record

Camping season is upon us! As a reminder, be sure to encourage ALL participants to fully complete the Annual Health & Medical Record (AHMR) for ALL activities. And yes, the 2019 version is current.

To be sure to have the most current information, remember to link to the AHMR, and don’t host your own version.

  • Parts A, B & C - For events/resident camps lasting 72 hours or more.
  • Risk Advisory - Don’t forget the Risk Advisory for each of the High Adventure Bases. This should be reviewed with your healthcare provider at the time of your pre-participation exam.
  • Council Based High Adventure Program - We’ve built this template for you to develop your own risk advisory for your council high adventure program to share with your campers.
