Pack 97 Camping Checklist
Please use this checklist as a guide when preparing for Pack 97 campouts. This equipment list is geared towards a one- or two-night camping trip (such as Pack 97 Family Camping in June/October).
Please note that some items are not allowed at the Webelos Snuffy Camping competition, and are marked as such below.
Recommended Camping Gear:
- Tent (don’t forget the tent stakes!)
- Light (with a hook) to hang inside tent (example: inexpensive LED light at Harbor Freight)
- Tarp to place under tent–make sure it is large enough; excess tarp can be folded under the tent
- Mallet for securing tent stakes
- Sleeping bags (note: for cool weather camping, consider extra blankets)
- Foam pad to place under sleeping bag
- Air mattress (optional)–don’t forget the air pump!
- Backpack or other bag with straps for carrying in gear
- small wagon/cart for pulling in larger items (optional, but useful for camping at places like Capik where we hike in)

- Class A uniform
- Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, deodorant, soap, etc.)
- DEET bug spray (enough for the your whole family and to use around your tent)

- Personal First aid kit (Pack 97 brings a big one, so parents don’t need anything extensive)
- consider something compact, such as this: http://www.scoutstuff.org/kit-bsa-scout-1st-aid.html#.VfyOCd9Viko or http://www.scoutstuff.org/kit-family-first-aid.html#.VfyOEN9Viko ).
