Packing checklist


The items listed below will be necessary to insure your son's health and comfort while attending Summer Camp 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 week will be provided for as part of their Summer Camp fee. However, he should consider bringing snacks to replenish his energy between meals. There is a traiding post where junk food is for sale. If you must send your son with snacks and/or junk food make sure they are indavidualy wraped items and inform them not to eat them in their tents. Sunks and Coons will smell the food and come into the tent to dine on the leftovers. If you son and/or his personal items are sprayed by a Skunk, everything but the boy will be burnt! Therefore, DON'T have food in the tent!!!

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. Such iteams are tossed in the rubbish bin.

Turn your Summer Camp Physical in at least two weeks before leaving for camp to your Scout Master.

Where your swim suit under your uniform on the first day of camp. After setting up camp you will be expected to take a swim test.

Uniform is worn for every Breakfast and Dinner. Bring some Woolite to clean your uniform.

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.
