What to Bring?

 

In this section of the site you will learn about what to bring. If you are a new scout, this site is ideal for you. If you have been in scouting for a number of years and still don't know what to bring, shame on you but use this site anyway! If you need any more help turn to the purple "hiking" and green "camping" sections in you Boy Scout Handbook.
