What to bring for campouts...

Posted on May 8 2011 - 12:36am

I took a look through a list that someone provided, then looked through mine (Mr Godfrey's), and decided that there was A LOT missing from that first list (so I removed THAT list).  I found what looks like a pretty complete list at another Troop's website, http://www.t652.com/wp-content/uploads/what_to_bring_on_a_campout.pdf (this is just an EXAMPLE of what I found).  But then I spent a little time checking the Boy Scout Handbook and guess what I found?  Starting on page 292, there is a "Personal Camping Checklist" that provides a good overview as well.  Other elements are in different areas of your Boy Scout Handbook - so get familiar with it!

When You Know the Boys had a Good Time Camping...

Clearly, these guys had a very busy weekend at the Order of the Arrow (OA) Section Conclave last weekend at Gerber Scout Reservation in Twin Lake, MI.
This is what happens on the way home when Scouts have "too much fun!"

Winter Campout at Cole Canoe Base - Winter Activities and Scout Skills/Rank Advancement

Posted by admin on Mar 2 2014 - 2:18am

10 Scouts and 7 adults made the trek up north to our home-away-from-home - Cole Canoe Base in Alger, MI - to spend a weekend playing in the snow and working on their Scout Skills.  No trailer meant less chance for high-wind related issues, but it also meant bringing everything in the vehicles.  Over the course of the weekend, the Scouts had to deal with several items that were left behind, but that's part of Scouting.
