Informed Consent, Release Agreement, and Authorization
I understand that participation in Scouting activities involves the risk of personal
injury, including death, due to the physical, mental, and emotional challenges in the
activities offered. Information about those activities may be obtained from the venue,
activity coordinators, or your local council. I also understand that participation in
these activities is entirely voluntary and requires participants to follow instructions
and abide by all applicable rules and the standards of conduct.
In case of an emergency involving me or my child, I understand that efforts will
be made to contact the individual listed as the emergency contact person by
the medical provider and/or adult leader. In the event that this person cannot be
reached, permission is hereby given to the medical provider selected by the adult
leader in charge to secure proper treatment, including hospitalization, anesthesia,
surgery, or injections of medication for me or my child. Medical providers are
authorized to disclose protected health information to the adult in charge, camp
medical staff, camp management, and/or any physician or health-care provider
involved in providing medical care to the participant. Protected Health Information/
Conﬁdential Health Information (PHI/CHI) under the Standards for Privacy of

seq., as amended from time to time, includes examination ﬁndings, test results, and
treatment provided for purposes of medical evaluation of the participant, follow-up

of the participant’s ability to continue in the program activities.
(If applicable) I have carefully considered the risk involved and hereby give my
informed consent for my child to participate in all activities offered in the program.
I further authorize the sharing of the information on this form with any BSA volunteers
or professionals who need to know of medical conditions that may require special
consideration in conducting Scouting activities.
With appreciation of the dangers and risks associated with programs and
activities, on my own behalf and/or on behalf of my child, I hereby fully and
completely release and waive any and all claims for personal injury, death, or
loss that may arise against the Boy Scouts of America, the local council, the
activity coordinators, and all employees, volunteers, related parties, or other
organizations associated with any program or activity.
I also hereby assign and grant to the local council and the Boy Scouts of America,
as well as their authorized representatives, the right and permission to use and
publish the photographs/ﬁlm/videotapes/electronic representations and/or sound
recordings made of me or my child at all Scouting activities, and I hereby release
the Boy Scouts of America, the local council, the activity coordinators, and all
employees, volunteers, related parties, or other organizations associated with
the activity from any and all liability from such use and publication. I further
authorize the reproduction, sale, copyright, exhibit, broadcast, electronic storage,
and/or distribution of said photographs/ﬁlm/videotapes/electronic representations
and/or sound recordings without limitation at the discretion of the BSA, and I
speciﬁcally waive any right to any compensation I may have for any of the foregoing.
NOTE: Due to the nature of programs and
activities, the Boy Scouts of America and local
councils cannot continually monitor compliance
of program participants or any limitations
imposed upon them by parents or medical
providers. However, so that leaders can be as
familiar as possible with any limitations, list any
