What to wear? – Watch the weather and dress appropriately, including appropriate footwear – dress to the temperature and the weather. If it’s sunny, be sure to wear sunscreen and/or a hat to shield you from sunburn.

Do I need to wear my Scout uniform? – Dress for the weather – uniform is optional. Class-B T-shirts are fine.

What to bring? – Start with the Cub Scout six essentials in a backpack: Flashlight, Water, Whistle, First Aid Kit, Sunscreen, and Trail Food. If your Scout wants to help lead the hike, bring a copy of the trail map. Older Scouts who have their Whittlin’ Chip card may bring their pocketknife, with parental permission. If it is damp or raining, carrying an extra pair of socks is a good idea.
