Boy Scouts Consent Form

Obtaining a Boy Scouts of America parental consent form is one of the requirements for participation in activities hosted by this organization. A parent or guardian must fill out the consent form to allow their child to participate. A portion of the form gives the responsible party the authority to make health care decisions on behalf of the child included on the form. Due to the form providing legal consent for treatment, Boy Scouts of America cannot be held liable or responsible for any issues that might arise.
