What to Bring
Weather is slated to be chilly. Precipitation should be minimal, but will still be wet/muddy from this weeks snow. Coats, hats, gloves, boots .... will be necessary. If a child is un-prepared for the weather, we will ask you to take them home. Here are a few more ideas: ** All Scouts encouraged to bring back pack with the Essential 6.
Extra clothes is a good idea (especially socks, and gloves)
Flashlight (with good batteries)
Boots -WILL be muddy
Water Bottle (may want to bring filled) - even when it's cold, you need to stay hydrated.
Sleeping Bag (or blankets if you don't have a bag)
PJ's (if you prefer)
Slippers/Sandals to wear in the cabin (or just plan on throwing your socks away)
Card games/small board games
Wagon (if you have one) - to haul gear back to camp. Save your arms.
Other important details and notes
Just in case I didn't say it already:
Please dress to be outside. Proper cold weather, rain gear, and boots are a must! Once a Scout gets cold and wet, they will no longer be having fun ... and they will let you know about it all day long. We will NOT be hanging out in the Cabins all day, they are reserved for emergencies only.
I always encourage Class A uniforms ... but Class B is fine too. If you don't have either, then just wear clothes. Clothes are better than naked.
All should bring a change of clothes, and EXTRA SOCKS! Even if you're just coming for the day
Flashlights are recommended. It gets dark early, and navigating camp without them may prove difficult.
