Philmont Medical Exams

posted Apr 2, 2017, 1:32 PM by Robert Brese

This is a reminder that every participant must have a completed medical form dated no later than August 10, 2016, and preferably one dated later than January 2017 (within 6 months of Philmont).

Like summer camp, this form must be signed by a medical professional. A Tetanus vaccination must be within 10 years and while other vaccinations are not mandatory, we need your vaccination status filled in (not just attached) as this helps the Philmont medical staff fully understand the medical condition of each participant. Please contact me if you need a vaccination exemption request form.

Also, the medical professional must review the Philmont risk advisory and mark "True" that "For high-adventure participants, I have reviewed with them the important supplemental risk advisory provided".

If at all possible, please have your medical examination completed by May 31, 2017. If you cannot, please let your lead advisor and Mr. Brese know the date of your scheduled examination.

The required form is attached. You may already have this form at home on obtained it online, but please make sure you are using the form marked "2014 Printing" at the bottom right.
