Please Leave at Home Phones (unless you are a PL, APL in which case, please bring one if you have one and give it to me to keep in the car/minibus except when on hikes), electronic items, and anything easily breakable.

Also, please don’t bring huge hordes of sweets, chocolates or energy drinks.  There will be lots of food and snacks available at the camp, and we don’t want to attract rats or insects into the tents, following the scent of sweet food.  Also Scouts don’t sleep if they have too much sugar, and we have had cases of sickness in the past caused by bingeing on chocolate.

SCOUTS – please pack the bag yourself, so that you know where everything is!
