  • 5 shorts or pants
  • 6 pair of underwear
  • jacket or sweatshirt
  • 6 pairs of socks
  • 2 pairs of shoes (sandals or open-toed shoes are allowed only at the waterfront)
  • Scout Handbook, notebook and pencils all in a ziploc bag
  • raingear
  • sleeping bag
  • backpack/day pack
  • long sleeve button down shirt and long pants for swimming merit badge
  • money for trading post
  • flashlight or headlamp and extra batteries
  • pocketknife and totem chip
  • swimming trunks and towel
  • sunscreen and insect repellent both must be pump spray–no aerosol sprays
  • water bottle/canteen/cup
  • toiletries
  • medicines labeled with scouts name and day/time for taking
  • scout hat to keep sun off head and out of eyes
  • a bag for their dirty clothes (a garbage bag is fine.)
  • daypack

All electronics need to be left at home.

Make sure all of your scouts gear is labeled with his name or initials. Put their name on everything. Remember all socks look alike and they will get comingled at some point.

In addition to the items listed on the summer camp packing list,your Scout will need to be able to put all of his gear (except his sleeping bag) in a large plastic, locking tub/bin or plastic footlocker.  Each Scout should have a combination lock for the bin/locker.  This will keep the gear relatively dry during rain and allow your Scout to lock it securely while he is away from his tent.  The troop has no specific recommendation for this but many have had good luck with this type of storage locker
Keep in mind, this piece of gear will be used every year during summer camp.
