Before each camp, we will supply s specific gear list, but here is an example for a 2 day weekend camp. Please get your Cub to help pack, so they know where everything is. All items should be clearly labelled with the Cub’s name.
|Cub Uniform – shirt and scarf|
|3 pairs of socks, some thick for wellies or walking boots|
|2 pairs of trousers – not denim|
|2 pair of shorts|
|1 fleece or very warm jumper|
|2 pairs of shoes – sneakers or walking boots|
|Wash kit – toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, flannel, in waterproof washbag with name on|
|Towel (please label)|
|Warm Sleeping bag|
|Depending on time of year – Warm blanket|
|Roll mat – the tents are not large enough for air beds|
|Ditty Bag (Plates, Cutlery, tee-towel etc)|
|Day Pack (or school bag)|
|Water bottle – labelled|
|Cake/ cakes/ biscuits in a labelled tin or container to be given to leaders at Campsite.|
|Any personal medical requirements|
|Kayakers Only – trainers that can get wet, a swimming towel, a swimming costume or wetsuit, shorts and T-shirt that can be worn over swimming costume or wetsuit to keep the children warm|
- No mobile phones, electronic games, or other gadgets are allowed.
- It is best to pack a rucksack or soft bag. Suitcases and bin bags are not appropriate. However it is a good idea to use a black bin bag as a “lining” to a rucksack to keep the clothes dry just in case the rucksack gets wet.
- It can be cold at night. Please send you Cub with appropriate sleeping bag and blanket to ensure they are warm.
- And no sweets please – see Camp Q & A .
Note: No responsibility for the personal equipment/clothing and effects can be accepted by the camp organisers and The Scout Association does not provide automatic insurance cover in respect to such items.
