New Scout Camping Gear

Packing for a camping trip can be an overwhelming task. Over-packing for camp is a common error, especially for first-year campers. But you also have to make sure you pack everything you will need. 

The following is a basic gear list for new scouts. This list will apply for most camping trips, however, some trips (such as canoe trips, cycling trips, caving trips, etc.) will have special packing requirements. So you should always attend the troop meetings before each trip when the details for the trip are discussed. Then you will find out about any special packing requirements for each camping trip.

Scout Outdoor Essentials Checklist (10 Essentials)

They’re called “essentials” for a reason. Every packing list starts with these 10 items that are usually kept in your day-pack.

      1.   A pocketknife or multi-tool can be handy in a wide variety of situations (don’t forget to first earn your Totin’ Chip).
2.     first-aid kit can be a lifesaver. Literally.
3.     Bring extra clothing to match the weather. Multiple layers are better than a single massive jacket.
4.     Rain gear is very important. Being wet from rain may result in hypothermia, a potentially fatal condition.
5.     flashlight is important for finding your way in the dark.
6.     Trail food is good for maintaining your energy.
7.     Water can prevent dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke.
8.     Matches and/or a fire starter may be used to light fires for heat, or for signaling for help.
9.     Sun protection might include sunblock, sunglasses, lip balm and a wide-brimmed hat.
10.  map and compass are probably the most important tools you can carry in case you get lost.

What Not to Bring to Camp:
Do not bring alcohol, firearms, tobacco, fireworks, illegal drugs, video games, fixed blade knives, excessive grooming products, highly odorous products, or excessive amounts of candy.
Clothing with inappropriate language or graphics will not be permitted. No pets of any kind, with exception of special needs animals, are permitted in camp. Campers are not permitted
to use ATVs or utility carts.
Use of electronic devices such as radios, tape/cd/mp3 players, electronic games, and cell phones is not permitted in camp program areas.  Unit leaders are responsible for setting camp-
site and travel policies regarding electronic devices.
Any items which are in violation of BSA policy may be confiscated by the camp staff and returned upon departure. The camp staff will work with the unit leader in all such cases.

Uniform and Attire in Camp:
The official Boy Scouts of America field uniform is always appropriate dress at Slippery Falls Scout Ranch.  Every camper is expected to wear the "Class A" uniform at evening meals,
while performing flag ceremony, attending chapel, and during campfires. The "Class B" uniform (substituting a scout t-shirt for the uniform shirt) and is acceptable at all other times.

Campers should wear sturdy walking or hiking shoes with socks. Lighter shoes may be worn at campsite. Sandals and shoes without toes are unsafe and not permitted.

Any Inappropriate clothing includes: sleeveless undershirts, cutoff shorts or shorts; clothes with holes; clothing with alcohol, tobacco or drug promotions, sexual references, vulgar, 
sexist or racist sayings, or gang insignia; and bikini swimsuits. Questionable or offensive tattoos must be covered.  

Visitor night at camp is Friday evening. At this time, parents will have the opportunity to eat with their children in the dining hall and to attend the closing campfire. Visitors should 
not plan to arrive prior to 5:00 p.m. as scouts will be involved in camp activities. The campfire will conclude around 9:30 p.m. Visitors should plan to leave shortly thereafter so scouts
and leaders can get a good night's sleep. A head count of the number of visitors who will be at Friday night's dinner will be needed by noon on Wednesday and costs $6.00/per person.

Parents are encouraged to write their sons while they are away at camp.  Please remember the mail may take more time to be delivered in a rural area, therefore letters mailed after Wednesday 
will more than likely not arrive in time:
