Don’t bring sweets or chocolate. There will be lots of food and snacks available at the camp, and we don’t want to attract rats or insects into the tents, Also, Scouts don’t sleep if they have too much sugar, and we have had cases of sickness in the past caused by bingeing on chocolate.

Scouts – please pack the bag yourself, so that you know where everything is!
