BSA Health and Safety Form.  This fillable form is needed to participate in long term camps; i.e., summer camp, high adventure camps, campouts lasting over 72 hours.

Merit Badge Counselor Application. In order to be a registered BSA merit badge counselor, an adult must complete the Merit Badge Counselor Application and an Adult Registration Application. The Adult Registration Application (can be obtained at the Council Office in San Antonio or from any unit leader) only requires the applicant's signature and proof of Youth Protection Training. All three documents are required for the first merit badge application. When merit badges are added or dropped, only the Merit Badge Counselor Application need be submitted. Applications can be turned in to unit leaders, the Advancement Chair, or the District Scout Executive.
