Camping Checklists

Scouting is camping!  Based on our experiences camping in different situations and weather, the following packing and gear lists have been developed as an aid.  Look at these lists as guidance, not required checkoffs where every single little thing on the list absolutely must be packed.  For example, we have pretty sophisticated medical kits, so first aid might be just tossing in a few band-aids and wipes in case your son suffers a cut or scrape on his way between Merit Badge events at Summer Camp.  Also, the Troop does have equipment, such as tents and helmets, that can be checked out, so speak with us before you buy.
