Please note


  1. This equipment should be packed in a rucksack or a sports bag, one per Cub Scout; suitcases must not be used.  All equipment should be inside the bag with no loose items.
  2. Please pack the bag with your son or daughter so they have some idea what they have packed and what it looks like.
  3. All items must be labelled clearly with the young person’s name.
  4. Medications must be labelled clearly with child’s name, dose and frequency of medication.
  5. For a variety of reasons we do not permit Cubs to bring electronic gadgets of any sort (including mobile phones) on camp.
  6. Cubs should not bring their own knives (e.g. penknife or sheath knife).
  7. Please do not allow your child to come on camp with excessive quantities of sweets or other food. The Cubs will be very well fed and there is no need for them to bring extra – a single packet of sweets as a treat would be ample.  Also note that, based on past experience, chewing gum and bubble gum are banned.   The leaders reserve the right to confiscate excessive quantities of sweets which would be returned at the end of camp.
  8. This list is not exhaustive; equally, depending on the great British weather some items may or may not be required.
  9. The leaders cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to personal property.
  10. If you have any questions about kit, please ask one of the leaders.
