When your son goes off on a Boy Scout camping trip, there's a list
of items that he should always
have on hand. Therefore, it's important to stop at a
store and stock up on the essentials that your son will need before he
heads out with his troop.
Survival and Hygiene Essentials
A Boy Scout should never go off to camp without a multipurpose pocketknife,
a first-aid kit, a map, a compass, a flashlight, bottled water, rain gear,
and gloves. In order to stay clean while out in the woods,
a Boy Scout needs a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap and hand wipes, a comb, a towel, a washcloth, and
Food and Cooking Basics
To prepare food on a camping trip, a Boy Scout should always have a plastic
food-storage bowl, utensils, and an insulating mug. As far as cooking
equipment, he should pack a small pot and a lightweight, 10-inch frying
pan. Of course, he should also have non-perishable snacks on hand to keep
him nourished on his treks.
In addition to the aforementioned survival, hygiene, and cooking supplies,
a Boy Scout should have various miscellany on hand while camping. For
time and record keeping, it's crucial to bring a watch, notebook,
pen, and camera. In case he loses track of his fellow Scouts, he should
also have a whistle. Depending on the season, it could be wise to carry
sunglasses, sunscreen, and perhaps a can of bug spray.
