Weekend Packing List
This is a general list of requirements and suggestions.
Refer to each event’s Activity Sheet, and the website, for additional trip specific details.
All gear must be packed in a backpack or duffel bag. External items attached to backpacks must be positively secured. All clothes should be “packed” inside your backpack or duffel in plastic bag(s) to keep things dry – packs/duffels are not always as waterproof as we like to believe. A wet scout is an unhappy scout.
NO TRUNKS (footlockers) and NO “TRASH BAG SUITCASES”.
Always travel to and from Weekend Activities in Class B! (required)
A scout is prepared! Check the weather before you pack!
All medicines (with Medications Form) must be checked-in with the Adult Tour Leader Please … absolutely no personal electronics (e.g., ipods, cellphones, games, etc.)
