What to pack

I'm going to camp - what should I bring?

A lot of that depends on what kind of camp you're going to, what time of year it is, and what activities will be going on. A good place to start is, as always, your Scout Handbook--turn to page 268 for a checklist that should serve you well in most camping situations! This is what you'll find there:

The Scout Basic Essentials


Sleeping Gear

Mess Kit 

Personal Hygiene

Personal Items

When Camping with Troop 1, you won't need your phone or other electronic distractions, please leave them at home, or have a leader lock them in a vehicle.
