SOWE 2016

Hey, guys – let’s try to get all the Bear Scouts there for SOWE 2016.  It is outdoor camping, so BE PREPARED!  (Cold weather, band-aids, toilet paper, anything you think you may need!)  Here is an idea of what is going on Saturday/Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Saturday: Games and activities presented by adults and Boy Scouts in the Pack/Troop.

Saturday night: dinner, skits, then camping in tents.

Sunday morning: get up, pack up, and leave (no food provided by the Pack for breakfast so you may want to pack granola bars or something).

A packing list that may help but is NOT all-inclusive list (use your judgement!) follows:

  • clothes for Saturday day and Sunday (layers so that you can bundle up or strip off as needed)
  • clothes (possibly layers of sweats) to sleep WARMLY in
  • sleeping bag
  • pillow
  • sleeping mat
  • extra blankets (even a 40 degree night feels pretty cold when you’re shivering for 8 hours)
  • flashlight
  • water bottle
  • tooth brush/paste
  • toilet paper
  • any medicinal/first aid needs
  • snacks for after dinner
  • Sunday breakfast (granola bars, etc.)
  • 1 can of sliced potatoes per camper to use for our dinner project
  • 1 can of vegetables per camper to use for our dinner project
  • 1 dish to pass for dinner

ALSO, tell me if you need a tent.  If your family does not own one or you can’t borrow one, let me know as I will try to arrange for some extras to be made available from the Boy Scout Troop.
