Q/A: Medical Exams
The 2002 Lodge Contingent Leaders Guide
states that medical exams must take place no more that twelve
months prior to the start of the conference.
But some members of my lodge say that physicals for those
under age 40 are good for two years. Which is correct?
NOAC is a national event, and so uses a BSA Class-3 medical form.
This form requires a medical exam within the preceding 12 months.
This applies to everyone coming to NOAC, no matter what their age.
People may be confusing the NOAC requirements with that of a local
Boy Scout summer camp. Most summer camps use a Class-2 medical from
for individuals under age 40. The class-2 form only requires an exam
every 36 months.
But NOAC needs a Class-3 medical form, and thus an exam within
the past 12 months for everyone coming to the event.
