Camping Gear Checklists


They’re called “essentials” for a reason. Every packing list starts with these 10 items.

1. A pocketknife or multitool can be handy in a wide variety of situations. It’s useful for tasks as large as building an emergency shelter or lighting a campfire with poor fuel, or as small as repairing a damaged backpack. Don’t forget to first earn your Whittling Chip (for older Cub Scouts) or Totin’ Chip (for Boy Scouts).

2. A first-aid kit can be a lifesaver. Literally.

3. Bring extra clothing to match the weather. Multiple layers are better than a single massive jacket, because layered clothing is adaptable to a wide range of temperatures.

4. Rain gear is very important. Being wet from rain may result in hypothermia, a potentially fatal condition.

5. A flashlight is important for finding your way in the dark.

6. Trail food is good for maintaining your energy.

7. Water can prevent dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

8. Matches and/or a fire starter may be used to light fires for heat, or for signaling for help.

9. Sun protection might include sunblock, sunglasses, lip balm and a wide-brimmed hat.

10. A map and compass are probably the most important tools you can carry in case you get lost.

Klondike Packing Packing List & General Info

Camping, and in particular Winter Camping, is one of the Scouts' favorite activities as evidenced by the fact that our kids always want to schedule a Wilderness Survival merit badge camp out in the winter. Cold and wet really do not necessarily translate into freezing and miserable. The key is proper packing. Make sure you have what you need, but do not over pack! For families new to this, there are equipment lists attached below for your reference. And if you have questions, any of the older kids and adults are happy to share their experiences of what works and what does not.

Being Active in Scouting

  For the rank of Star, Life, and Eagle, the scouts are required to "be active" in the troop and serve in some type of leadership position. Who's definition of active are we suppose to abide too?

     The March-April 2012 edition of Scouting Magazine did an article that offers the best viewpoint.  This is the guideline we should follow. It recognizes that several organization are found outside of Scouting that boys may be involved in, and that it is unreasonable to expect 100% attendance at all functions.  However, the fact also remains that the PURPOSE of "being active" in Scouting is so the program can have an impact on you, and you can have an impact on the Program and your fellow scouts.  Meaning, a reasonable amount of participation and attendance is specific towards you. 

     Those in Leadership positions have a unique responsibility.  People are actually counting on you to do your "job" and provide leadership to the Troop in general.

     See the attached document for more information.
