Packing Checklists

The Gear

Exploring and camping in the outdoors requires a certain amount of specialized gear.  Our troop participates in various outdoor adventures lasting from short day hikes to multi-day backpacking trips.  

We usually travel by car, but once at our destination, we have traversed the landscape by foot and by cycling and we have explored the waterways by kayak and canoe.  

We have camped in all types of weather where we have slept under the stars, in tents, in cabins, and in snow shelters.

The personal gear required will vary with the type of camp we attend and the weather we decide to adventure in.

Below are some checklists that you may find helpful.  

Here is a Generic Packing List that covers most of Troop 50's outings.
