Our Scout troop is very active in the outdoors with many meetings having an outdoor component in addition to our frequent camps. As such, proper equipment is essential for an enjoyable safe experience.
The troop supplies all of the group equipment (stoves, lanterns, tents etc) so all you require is your own personal equipment.
