Camp Equipment

Your next point is to look to the equipment-that is to say, what you will need in the way of cooking gear, buckets, tools, and so on. Here is a rough list of things that are useful in a standing camp, but they will not all be necessary in a bivouac or hike camp.

For Tent-Bucket, lantern and candles, matches, mallet, basin, spade, axe, hank of cord, Patrol flag, and strap for hanging things on the tent pole.

For Kitchen-Saucepan or stewpot, fry-pan, kettle, grid-iron, matches, bucket, butcher's knife, ladle, cleaning rags, bags for potatoes, etc.

For Each Scout-Waterproof groundsheet, two blankets or sleeping bag, cord or strap for tying them up, straw mattress (to be made in camp-twine and straw required), ration bags. It is important that enough sleeping bags or blankets be provided to enable each Scout to make up a separate bed.

Personal Equipment-Each Scout will need:

  • Complete Scout Uniform, including headgear
  • Pyjamas or change for night
  • Spare shirt and shorts
  • Change of underwear
  • Mending materials
  • Sweater
  • Plates, cup or mug
  • Rain coat
  • Knife, fork and spoon
  • Spare shoes and socks
  • Matches
  • Bathing trunks
  • Tea towel
  • Towel
  • Haversack or pack
  • Handkerchiefs
  • Soap, comb, brush, toothbrush, in toilet bag.

An old camper always has with him in camp three or four little linen bags for carrying his provisions. Of course, he makes these for himself before going out into camp.

The ration bag need not be bigger than 6 inches deep by 3 inches wide, and should have a tape run through the hem of the neck with which to draw it tight.

While you are about it, it is also useful to make yourself some bigger bags to keep odds and ends in, in camp-such as string, spare buttons, needle case, scissors, and so on.

I have linen bags, too, for putting my boots into when packing up. It prevents them from dirtying the clothes among which they are packed.
