If the council sponsoring the camp is like ours, they have a sheet of
items. What the Scouts need you need. In addition, if like me you try
to let the Scouts experience the camp instead of the SM, a couple of
good books, a cribbage board and deck and a portable antenna with ham
radio are good.
A camera with a ton of film so you can show the folks back home and
especially next year's 5th grade webelos what you did is a good idea.
If you have a video camera and lots of spare batteries, that is good.
I generally carry my dulcimer. About the third night when they are a
bit tired and just a little homesick, a song circle at the fire is a
good idea. Of course you have to be a player for that to work.
I carried (as an ADC I don't take troops out anymore which I miss a
lot) a small locking file box and a set of envelopes. I operated a
**voluntary** deposit system. If a boy wanted to deposit some of his
cash with me, he could. If he did not, that was fine but I disclaimed
all responsibility for lost wallets etc.
