SPECIAL PACKING NOTES

Use the following to Pack Yourself using these 3 things below.   When you’re done, if you are a new scout, have your parents check you:
  1. Personal Camping Gear List in your Scout Book
  2. Information Sheet printed above
  3. Your own personal List you already have  (if you don’t have one, start one)

So, here are some additional packing suggestions/requirements that are not in the Scout Book or Information Sheet, but we discussed at the Troop Meeting:

  •           Whistle (required to wear while canoeing)
  •           Make everything water proof – Put stuff in Zip-locks and/or put the whole thing in garbage bags.
  •           Sports Gear for the Beach
  •           Durable Camera and/or binoculars (in a zip-lock).  There’s a lot of wildlife.
  •           Those who are using hammocks, you’ll need mosquito netting.  Either full netting, or face netting and wear long clothing.  Everyone needs bug spray.
  •          If you like fishing, you want to prepare for that.   River fishing for sure, and Surf Fishing if you have the gear for it.
  •           Entertainment for the ride.   Bring a book, magazine, read your scout book for the 1 ½ hour trip.
  •           Bagged lunch on Friday (this is in the Information sheet, so you should have read it already)
