Troop Equipment Storage Area

Whereas an established troop is already well-equipped, a new troop can go through a process of procuring its camping equipment as the needs arise. Stored in an equipment room, a shed, or inside a troop trailer, a troop’s camping equipment is normally classified in two ways:

1.  Basic Troop Gear – used by the entire troop

  • Dining Flies
  • Tents
  • Drop Cloths
  • Stakes
  • Cordage
  • Poles
  • Large Cooking Items
  • Tools (bow saws, hand axes, shovels, etc.)
  • First Aid Kit
  • Water Containers

2.  Basic Patrol Gear  – assigned to individual patrols for which they’re accountable, often stored in a patrol box or bag

  • Patrol-size Cooking and Cleaning Items
