Scout Camp Kit List

If you have any issues purchasing the essential items please speak to one of the leaders. We have some equipment available to borrow.

Everything MUST be named (Drinks bottles, day bags and coats should be named ideally with 20th Worcester too, so they can make their way back to us).

Remember, no snacks or sweets allowed. Food must be handed in on arrival (unless of course it’s an expedition camp!)
