Packing:

Use the camping equipment checklist (personal) with these additions and reminders:
  • Line the duffel bag with a garbage bag bore packing to ensure dry contents in case of rain. Some folks individually bag each days clothes to keep them clean and dry.
  • Baby powder or Gold Bond powder is great for eliminating chafing.
  • Bring a Mess kit (sturdy plate, cup, knife, fork spoon, hot cup)
  • A wire hanger is great for hanging up the Class A uniform at night.

Medications

Any prescription medicine must be in its original bottle with current prescription and expect amount needed for camp in a Zip-Loc Bag with the Scouts name written on the bag. Epi-Pens and inhalers may be kept by the scout.
