All you will need to enjoy your first campout is your personal gear (which should include a sleeping bag, a mess kit - plate/bowl, cup and eating utensils). Generally there is nothing you need to buy. Scouts are required to use the tents provided by the Troop. Adults can use Troop tents or their own tents (most adults in the Troop prefer to use their own tents). All pots, pans, stoves, lanterns, cleaning and other camp supplies are provided by and maintained by the Troop. The Gear List below is a guide for those who might want to shop for some additional personal gear or clothing. Troop t-shirts and hats are available for purchase at various Troop meetings.
*These items are generally for adults only. Scouts sleep in Troop provided tents. Adults like to use cots.
**A scout must have earned and be in possession of his Totin’ Chip before he may possess or use any knife or tools with knives on them.
***A scout must have earned and be in possession of his Firem’n Chit before he may possess or use any lighters or matches.
