Mail in Camp 

We encourage you to write to your scout while he is at camp. Please do not make your scout homesick by telling him how much you miss him or how much fun you are having without him. On weekdays, Tomahawk accepts daily deliveries from USPS, UPS, FedEx and other carrier services. Mail can take three days to reach Tomahawk.
Mail should be addressed:
Scout Name
Mohawk - Troop 9494
Sioux Camp
Tomahawk Scout Reservation
N1910 Scout Road
Birchwood, WI 54817

Personal Gear

Scouts should pack for a week-long trip; see the packing list. Scouts will need to provide their own dish, bowl, cup and eating utensils. The troop will provide the necessary cooking equipment. "Action Packers" or similar sealed tubs to hold gear are recommended. It keeps their gear dry even during monsoon rain. Do not pack any food in with the personal gear (see "Snack Bins" section below). Scouts should bring spending money for the trading post. Preloaded Visa gift cards are recommended but cash is okay too. You can pre-order Tomahawk clothing from the online trading post starting on April 15th. To see a breakdown on typical pricing of items click here.

Personal radios, tape/CD players are allowed and MUST be used with headphones. Scouts are not permitted to bring video games, cell phones, two-way radios or other electronic gear. Aside from the disruptive effect they have on the campsite, they rarely survive the camping experience. 

Snack Bins

Scouts are permitted to bring a small snack bin with pop and snacks. DO NOT BRING ANYTHING WITH PEANUTS OR TREE NUTS OR THAT WILL MELT! Snack bins will be available for purchase at a Scout meeting. First years are provided one. We want all snack bins to be the same, so they stack easily in the troop trailer. The snack bins and any other food item will NOT be permitted in tents and will be stored in the troop trailer at night. No food of any type should be packed in your Scouts' personal gear. Tomahawk comes fully equipped with raccoons, mice, chipmunks, and bears.

Tent Signs

Scouts are required to make a sign for their tent. The signs must have the scouts first name and at least the first letter of their last name. The letters can be painted, carved or engraved on the material. The only requirements are that the signs be durable, legible and the letters at least two inches high. The sign can be on a stake or hang from the tent. Note: cardboard doesn't hold up very well in a camping environment unless it is covered with some sort of clear plastic.
