Spring, Fall, & Summer Camping Equipment List


To The Scouts & Parents:

This list is a GUIDELINE of most of the things needed for camping in the spring, summer, or fall. As you can see, most of the things asked for are found in most homes and are readily available. However, if you are going to buy something extra PLEASE feel free to call me.

Although this seems to be changing, most things such as flashlights, eating set, compasses, etc. are more expensive if they have SCOUTS CANADA written on them.

Since the Scouts are doing the camping, I am asking that they be the ones to pack their own backpack. I have seen it too often where the Scout has too much of one thing and not enough of the things needed. Parents, lay out their things if you wish but let your Scout do the packing.
