What to Pack Stuff In?
When you arrive for departure, you should be packed as follows:
  1. Two Tubs (or one foot locker.. see info below) filled with everything on the Packing List with the exception of the following items:
  2. Folding Camp Chair and optional Folding Table (1 table/tent)
  3. Day Pack, packed with items as indicated on the Packing List, PLUS your bagged lunch and any travel book, electronics or money.
  4. Bedding in a Duffel Bag or thick trash bag (if you have room to spare in your tubs, use it).   This would include sleeping bag, pillow, sheets, etc.   Don't pack this stuff in your tubs because you'll need it for the 1st night on the road!
Two Tubs .vs. One Foot Locker
Items listed in #1 above, must be carried in either two tubs or one foot locker.   Duffel bags lead to dis-organization on a long summer camp, and back packs have no place to hang.  Suit cases aren't well suited for being in an outside tent and typically do not hold as much as the tubs or foot locker.    Anything  you use must be under 18" (cot height with no sagging).   Here are the differences between the foot locker .vs. the two tubs options:
  • Two Tubs - 116 Quarts (58 each) - $10.93 for both at WalMart - SEE HERE (they sell individually at store)
    • Easier to organize in 2 containers
    • Lids come off without pulling out from under cot
    • Allows tent mates to access tubs simultaneously
  • One Foot Locker - 98 Quarts - $19.97 at WalMart - SEE HERE (they sell individually at store)
    • More robust (for future use)
    • Lockable (although we ask that they not be locked if possible)
    • Harder to organize and access under cot and with tent mates
