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 Boy 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
First Aid kit
Water bottle - for High Adventure camps, having a wide-mouth Nalgene bottle and a dromedary bladder is often a perfect combo!
Matches and fire starter
Clothes appropriate for the weather and season; choose materials that will keep you warm and dry--wool, wicking fabrics, etc.(see page 268 of your Handbook). Layers...
Sleeping bag - with an appropriate temperature rating.
Pencil or pen
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.
