What to bring camping

Troop 419 has a very active outdoor program and all boys are encouraged to participate. Our program includes monthly weekend campouts, annual long term summer camp (1 week), day hikes and other outdoor activities.

Following is a list of items recommended to take to a week-long Boy Scout camp. Many of the boys purchase “camp boxes,” or footlockers, to store their camping gear for week-long camps. The boxes are lockable and help keep the boys organized. The boxes can be purchased at Walmart for around $20. 

For an overnight or two-day camping trip, the following is recommended:

  • Sleeping bag, tent, and cot/air mattress
  • mess kit with eating utensils and cup
  • bug spray and sun block
  • knife and totin’ chip
  • raingear if appropriate
  • flashlight, toothbrush and tooth paste
  • and food for patrol
