What to Bring to Camp - Guideline from the official Bartle Leader's Manual

The Boy Scout uniform builds individual and unit pride. The Scoutmaster’s attitude toward wearing the Boy Scout uniform will be reflected in the dress of his troop. Scouts should wear their uniform to and from camp with pride! Scouts and Scouters who have their Class “A” uniform shall wear it to campwide flag ceremonies, as well as campfires, Mic-O-Say Ceremonies (if not in tribal attire) and religious services. Those who do not own a complete uniform should wear their Class “B” uniform.
Every troop at camp should take a few minutes to determine if it has everything necessary for a quality program. Remember that there is no electricity in your campsite. The following is only a suggested list of items to take to camp. Consult the Scoutmaster’s Handbook for a more detailed list.

Only small bills 1s, 5s & 10s should be brought to camp. The Trading Post cannot easily make change for larger bills.

All personal items and spending money should be kept in a secure camp box while at camp. Clothing should be clearly marked with your full name and troop number.
The Heart of America Council is not responsible for securing or for the loss of personal items. It is your responsibility to keep track of all personal valuables while at camp.
