List for Winter Camp

This is a list of equipment that is recommended for our Troop to take on its trip to our cabin in Mingo County. The Troop will be staying in a cabin that is heated and has a stove and refrigerator. The list though will include items that are usually needed for a winter time camping trip. There might be a night when the boys might get the chance to stay out in a tent for some cold night sleeping experience. This list includes items from the Boy Scout Handbook and items from leaders that have been on this campout before.

This camping trip is a cold weather event. You must remember what to bring for this type of trip. Though this is not a normal overnighter or weekend trip, this trip is for seven days. So you must remember to bring enough to last that length of a trip.
