Camp Out Equipment & Medical Forms


Since there many new scouts in the Troop, it was suggested that a list be formulated of some of the equipment needed, both for Troop camp outs and summer camp at Camp Squanto.  Below are some suggestions (there is also a link here  if you would like to print the checklist out).  As always, if anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask any questions at any Troop meetings.

Also, a current BSA Medical Form will be needed.  Here is a link to the BSA site that will take you directly to the BSA Medical Form.  This will bring you to a page where you can select all or a portion of the pages required.  For summer camp, you will need the "Are You Going to Camp?" version of the medical form.  This form will be due on or before the May 15th Troop meeting.
