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 similarly 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.

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.
