As scouts join the Troop there are many outdoor skills they will learn. To ensure every scout has the same basic learning opportunity all scouts below 1st Class are required to use Troop equipment during Troop activities. This will include lanterns, stoves, tents, cooking tools and Patrol Flies.
After a Scout earns 1st Class, with approval from the Scoutmaster, they may chose to purchase and use their own equipment or they can continue to use the Troop-supplied equipment.
