Wolfeboro 2017

posted Jun 6, 2017, 7:25 PM by Wesley Jones   [ updated Jun 28, 2017, 9:11 PM ]

You must be at FBC on July 1st at 9:00am to check-in.  We will leave promptly at 9:30, so be there at 9:00.

When Packing for Wolfeboro the packing list is more extensive than the average week-end trip.
Click Here for the Wolfeboro packing list
Additionally our PLC strongly recommends bringing:
These items are crucial: Closed-toed shoes, water bottle, wristwatch, swim gear, sunscreen
These items will make you more comfortable: 16 pairs of socks, camp chair, back-up pair of shoes, bug spray

If you plan on going on the Sourdough Backpacking trip (1 night, 2.5 miles each way) which is highly recommended for first time goers, then you will need to have a backpacking backpack (carrying a duffel-bag is very inconvenient when backpacking)

Finally, Wolfeboro recommends bringing cash to spend at their trading post (link for info)
The merit badges you have signed up for will have approximate costs; scouts will also want to purchase snacks, a merit badge book, souvenirs, a new pocket knife, a neckerchief slide to carve, etc.
Don't forget to set aside separate money to buy lunch on the drive there and the drive back.
