Below are 2 links that will give you a check list of items that were found to be either a must or nice to have on a camping trip. Keep the current weather conditions in mind when helping your son pack for a trip. Also, there is a limit of two (2) bags that can be brought on a trip. One bag should be for the sleeping bag and the other for clothing. This is due to limited space when we pack the gear for the trip. In addition to the two bags each scout is allowed to bring a camping chair or stool.
