    Camping is the joyous part of a Scout's life. Living out in God's open air, among the hills and the trees, and the birds and the beasts, and the sea and the rivers - that is, living with nature, having your own little canvas home, doing your own cooking and exploration - all this brings health and happiness which as you can never get among the bricks and smoke of the town.

    Hiking, too, where you go father afield, exploring new places every day, is a glorious adventure. It strengthens you and hardens you so that you won't mind wind and rain, heat and cold. You take them all as they come, feeling that sense of fitness that enables you to face any old trouble with a smile, knowing that you will concur in the end.

    Camping checklist

    Scout Handbook

    The items listed below will be necessary to insure your health and comfort while participating in the activities planned for a weekend trip. It is also recommended that you bring a game, book, or other item to help occupy his time during rest periods.

    Please, NO radios or other sound emitting devices; 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 camp outs!

    All food and drink that you will need for the weekend will be provided for a nominal fee decided upon by you and the other members of the Post. However, you should consider bringing snacks. ALL clothing items that you take should be permanently marked with your name. We frequently end up with a pile of dirty clothing after the campout with no one willing to claim anything in it. This pile is thrown away. The Adults are not responsible for your belongings.

    The following equipment, clothing, and personal items are recommended. However, if you do not have a specific item, a substitution should be made to provide similar functionality.
