Ultimate Scout Camp Clothing Checklist
Scouts practically live outdoors. But for new Scouts and their mothers, packing for overnight camp outs can be stressful.
To alleviate some stress, here’s the ultimate Scout camp clothing checklist to keep your son comfortable and safe:
❏ Scout uniform
❏ Warm jacket
❏ T-shirts (both short sleeve and long sleeve)
❏ Comfortable shorts
❏ Pair of loose jeans or hiking pants
❏ Socks (a good rule is to plan for 2/day)
❏ Durable shoes (hiking boots or sturdy tennis shoes)
❏ Extra pair of shoes
❏ Extra shoe laces
❏ Brimmed hat (baseball cap)
❏ Swim trunks
As you help your son pack, be sure to check off each item so you know for sure you haven’t missed anything.
And while a Scout campout’s checklist of clothing items will slightly vary based on the season and climate your son’s troop is camping in, as well as what activities they plan on doing and how many days they’ll be gone, this checklist includes the clothing necessities for a spring, summer or early fall overnighter.
