C&O Canal Bike Trip & Gettysburg Tour
Summer Camp at Manatoc
This campout includes patrol elections and rappelling! More details to follow.
EXTRA CLOTHING - Jeans, T-shirts, whatever. Scouts wear this for the balance of the campout. Bring enough in case it gets wet or muddy.
CHANGES OF UNDERWEAR AND SOCKS - Always bring plenty of socks!
FOOTWEAR - Insulated boots for winter; hiking boots for normal wear, tennis shoes to run around in if the weather is good.
COATS, HATS, SWEATSHIRTS, GLOVES - Depending on the weather.
LONG UNDERWEAR - A must for winter and early spring camps.
BACKPACK - On a frame, preferably with a hip belt. See the Eagle's Wings group for the best suggestions.
SLEEPING BAG -This is a critical item. Boys need to sleep warm. If bag is not warm enough, don't hesitate to send an extra blanket or two. Even if your bag comes in its own nylon stuff sack, put it in a plastic garbage bag before you fasten it to the pack. Wet sleeping bags are no fun.
PLASTIC GROUND SHEET - Min. 4' x 7 Even though our tents have floors this extra protection helps.
FLASHLIGHT - with fresh batteries
POCKETKNIFE - The BSA pocketknife is best. A lock blade standard knife is also good. The BSA does not permit sheath knives, spring blades, or blades over 5 inches.
MESS KIT - containing plate, bowl, cup, spoon, knife, fork
TOILET KIT - containing soap, comb, washcloth, towel, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant
INSECT REPELLANT - Summer item. Mosquitoes love Boy Scouts!
MATCHES - wooden in a waterproof container. A must-have item.
WATER BOTTLE - a must for hiking trips
COMPASS - not essential for all camps, but a good thing for hikes!
SCOUT HANDBOOK - 'Don't leave home without it! Except maybe a backpacking trip where weight is a consideration and there is a special equipment checklist issued.
PENCIL AND PAPER - Be Prepared!
SWIM SUIT AND TOWEL - For summer fun
1 or 2 GARBAGE BAGS - always come in handy to cover a pack, sleeping bag or to keep something wet from getting something else wet.
PONCHO OR RAIN GEAR - Scouts don't melt, but they can be an awful mess.
* Mark everything with your name!
* Learn to pack items in individual plastic bags - it stays dry!
* Radios, food, especially food, water pistols, etc. should stay at home
