SCOUTS-PLEASE PUT YOUR NAME ON ALL OF YOUR GEAR
If you are attending an event with dozens of other scouts and misplace a piece of clothing or gear there’s a much better chance it will find its way back to you if it is clearly marked with full name and troop number.

SCOUTS-LEAVE AT HOME   
Non-essential electronics, hunting knives, toys, inappropriate items, fireworks, alcohol, valuables, etc. 

PARENTS-MEDICATION 
Medicine needs to be in the original labeled bottle, specific written instructions on how to administer included, to be handed to a leader to be kept in a secure container.  Scouts are not to self-medicate except in the case of an inhaler.

PARENTS-PLEASE DO NOT PACK FOR YOUR SCOUT 
If you pack for your scout, they will not know what they have or where it is.  Letting scouts pack for themselves is a little trying for some parents.  Work with them instead.  Start with a pack list (see the troop website).  Lay everything out and check it off as they pack it.  Will they forget something?  Almost certainly!  The leaders do and we have been doing this longer.  Building self-sufficiency is an important part of scouting, and packing your own gear is a great way to do just that.

PARENTS-PLEASE HELP YOUR SCOUT KEEP TRACK OF THEIR GEAR 
Scouts are always saying they do not have a piece of gear because they could not find it at home.  After each camping trip see that they unpack, check that their gear is clean and dry and store it in a plastic tub (like the one we recommend for summer camp, 18 Gallon tote) so it is there for the next trip.
