In an effort to keep our camp outs and our scouts safe and secure, we wanted to remind parents (and scouts) that having decent camping gear (better quality) such as tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads and backpacks is EXTREMELY important when dealing with weather conditions such as lots of rain, wind, snow, or very cold temperatures.
