Camping Packing List

Perhaps the best part about scouting is the camping trips.  From hot weather camping to the freeze-o-ree, a scout must be prepared.  The following is a list to help the scout decide what to pack for camping.  Items can be added or removed depending on the type and time of year the scout is camping. Items presented in bold font identify the essential items to bring with you to camp.

  • Tent
  • Flashlight and Spare Batteries
  • Appropriate clothing for weather conditions both predicted and NOT predicted.  Pack extra clothing in case scout becomes wet. As a precaution, pack all clothes in large ziplock bags in case it rains.  Some scouts will put together an outfit for each day  - lay out your pants, place your shirt, underwear and socks in it and roll it up tightly.  Place in a large ziplock storage bag.  Each day, simply pull out one bag.  If your backpack becomes wet from rain, all of your clothes will remain dry.  (But honestly, have you ever known your scout to even change clothes on a weekend camping trip!?. Bring a winter hat if camping in cold weather. Scout can use the type that will fit over the face, leaving a hole for eyes, mouth and nose.
  • Sleeping bag and/or blanket, malleable (sometimes called mateable) with stuff sack, mummy, preferably 0 or 20 degrees. Bring extra blanket if camping in cold weather.  Place blanket inside sleeping bag.  The scout should always change clothes immediately before sleeping if camping in cold weather.  This will ensure that sweat will not be on the clothes the camper is sleeping in, which will cause the scout to become chilled.
  • Pillow
  • Roll (Mat that is placed under the sleeping bag to provide comfort or inflatable mattress)
  • Bug Spray
  • Sunscreen
  • Food & drinks
  • Water bottle or canteen
  • Mess kit including Utensils (Pack camping – paper plates/cups)
  • Boots for Rain or Water Shoes in the Summer
  • Camera, disposable is best, packed in a ziplock bag and marked with name and phone number.
  • Camp soap, found in a bottle, which can be used for the body and hair as well as for dishes and other items.
  • Camping stool, sometimes used for fishing.  These are about a foot high and are shaped like a tripod.  They are easy to fold and store and can be carried on a belt.
  • Compass and Map
  • First Aid and Sewing Kits
  • Flint or Water Proof Matches
  • Gloves if camping in cold weather.  Waterproof is best.
  • Hand warmers
  • Hat to provide shade in summer.
  • Hiking boots sprayed with waterproof sealer.
  • Lantern and Spare Batteries
  • Mosquito Net if at Week Summer Camp - May Need Dowels and Duck Tape to Attach to Cot
  • Playing Cards
  • Pocket Knife and Totem Chip
  • Rain Gear - Boots and Rain Cape or Rain Poncho
  • Rope
  • Scout Book
  • Some large ziplock bags to store wet clothes or dirty items in.
  • Swimsuit
  • Toilet Paper
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Towel and Washcloth
  • Uniform



Camping Rules

Listed below is a number of rules that must govern our behavior during family camp outs. Many of these rules are BSA rules which must be adhered to in order to receive BSA insurance coverage for all. We ask that you review these rules and use them to govern the behavior of your family on all family camp outs with our Pack. It is essential that we follow these rules. We want everyone to have fun and be able to participate in all camp activities.

  • No pets are allowed.
  • Only tent camping is permitted.
  • No one should enter anyone else’s tent for any reason.
  • Cub Scouts may not share a tent with any other family than his own.
  • No alcohol or drugs can be possessed or consumed during a family campout. (In the event that drug or alcohol use is discovered, the family will be made to leave the campout and the offending party will not be invited back on a Pack campout.)
  • No smoking (except in areas designated by the Cubmaster.)
  • No firearms, bows, or ammunition.
  • No sheath knives are permitted in camp.
  • Cub Scouts are not allowed to carry knives.
  • No open-toed shoes. Shoes must be worn at all times.
  • Do not cut down trees or vegetation. A Scout leaves an area better than he found it.
  • Children are not allowed to wander camp alone. The buddy system applies at all times.
  • Children are not permitted to wander into others camp sites without a supervising adult.
  • Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children when not at supervised camp activity.
  • No children will be permitted at the pool, beach, or other water without their parent or legal guardian present and ONLY WHEN THE LIFEGUARD IS ON DUTY.
  • At the end of a camp out, each Scout is responsible for picking up all trash in their immediate camp area and the common areas used by the Pack during a campout.
  • Two-deep leadership is required on all outings. Two registered adult leaders or one registered leader and a parent of a participant, or other adult, one of whom must be 21 years of age or older, are required on all trips and outings. The chartered organization is responsible for ensuring that sufficient leadership is provided for all Scouting activities.  Appropriate adult leadership must be present for all overnight Scouting activities; coed overnight activities—even those including parent and child—require male and female adult leaders, both of whom must be 21 years of age or older, and one of whom must be a registered member of the BSA. The chartered organization is responsible for ensuring that sufficient leadership is provided for all activities.
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is not permitted. In situations that require personal conferences, such as a Scoutmaster's conference, the meeting is to be conducted in view of other adults and youths.
