Q. What should you pack in a daypack at Scout camp?
— What-to-Pack Zach, Bay City, Tex.
A. Hey Zach, Thanks for the question. Well, what to pack really depends on what you’ll be doing at Scout camp (hiking? kayaking? rock climbing?), what time of year it is, what the weather is like, etc.
Luckily, we’ve covered that in a past issue of Boys’ Life. You can also check it out online here: http://scoutlife.org/outdoors/guygear/6948/gear-checklists-for-your-next-trip/
And don’t forget that The Boy Scout Handbook is a great resource and has lots of handy checklists.
