Kit Lists

Suggested Kit Lists

The following is a guideline of what to bring on a weekend camp and may be adjusted for seasonal and activity reasons. For our main week-long Easter or Summer Camps the list is increased in quantity.

These lists can be used as a basic list to get you started but always keep an eye on your emails as specific camps may require specific items. If this is the case your section leaders will let you know directly.  

When attending camp you should always arrive and return wearing minimum of top half uniform and neckers.

Lightweight Expeditions/Hiking

Tips and tricks

  • Try not to tie anything on the outside of your rucksack.  It nearly always falls off or gets snagged on something.  The only real exception to this is your roll mat which is difficult to put inside. BUT.. this must be in a waterproof bag/rubble sack/heavy duty bin bags to keep it dry. No one likes sleeping in a wet bed.
  • Everything should be named and put into bags before putting in a rucksack.
  •  It’s a good idea to put a bin bag in your rucksack first and then put all your kit in that to keep it dry if it is raining when we get on site.
