Remember the Scout will need to pack all their gear in a backpack to hike into camp. It is
approx ¾ mile slightly uphill depending on campsite we have. It’s strongly recommended
to stay under 30Lbs (preferably 25Lbs) packed for all their gear. The Troop has a scale to
weigh backpacks… You may need to work hard to stay below this limit – e.g. nylon
shorts, pack towel, lightweight sleeping bag & pad etc. We do have a single truck that
can take gear to the camp site but space is very limited and we encourage boys to carry
everything themselves as good backpacking practice. Scout uniform consists of official
Scout shirt and Scouting belt with either official Scout pants or official Scout shorts worn
with Scout socks. Troop 278 does not wear hats or neckerchiefs at summer camp.
