Patrols need to work together to make sure that patrol tents (poles & stakes) & tarps, stoves and cooking boxes (cleaned and properly stocked) are brought to camp by assigned patrol members. Tents have all been assigned to patrols and are not available from the Troop equipment stores. Please check your Tents BEFORE the campout to make sure that ALL parts are accounted for. If you have Patrol Equipment (tents, tarps, stoves, cooking equipment), make sure it makes it to this campout even if you aren’t attending.
