Camping Personal Check List
The items listed below will be necessary to insure your son's
health and comfort while participating in the activities planned
for a weekend trip. It is also recommended that he bring a game,
book, or other item to help occupy his time during rest periods.
Please, NO radios or other sound emitting devices that do not
have earphones; knives with blades longer than three (3) inches
or requiring sheaths, Aerosol sprays, or anything that has a high
monetary or sentimental value. We have discovered that things
have ways of being misplaced or broken on campouts!
All food and drink that your camper will need for the weekend
will be provided for a nominal fee decided upon by him and the
other members of his patrol. However, he should consider bringing
snacks to replenish his energy between meals. ALL clothing items
that your son takes should be permanently marked with his name.
We frequently end up with a pile of dirty clothing after the campout
with no one willing to claim anything in it.
The following equipment, clothing, and personal items are recommended.
However, if your son does not have a specific item, a substitution
should be made to provide similar functionality.
Many people have asked what some of the items on the page are.
Therefore, we have made links so you can see what we are talking about.
Where possible, we have given the BSA Catalog Numbers so you can look
them for yourself.
