Scouts Standing Camp Gear List

A standing camp is a camp where the scouts will camp as a patrol or a troop depending on how many are going or what activities are being done at the camp.

When packing for a standing camp all personal gear must fit into 1 bag, there is to be nothing tied onto the bag as these things can be lost and make it more difficult to pack into a trailer or car.

The bigger camping items such as tents, cooking equipment ( stoves, pots cooking cutlery), dinning fly’s, tables and chairs will be taken from the scouts gear in the hall.

Usually all that a scout will need to bring to a standing camp will be their own gear unless told otherwise. Sleeping bags and spare clothing should be wrapped in plastic bags or dry sacks to ensure they stay dry.

The following is a suggested list of gear needed for a standing camp,

1 x sleeping bag

1 x sleeping mat, 5 – 10mm thick

Mess kit in a cotton bag (1 x plate, 1 x bowl, 1 x cup, knife, fork, spoon, 1 x tea towel)
