What Do Scouts Need?

Scouts need a few bits and pieces to show that they are Scouts and a few things to set them up for adventure!
 
These include:
A  Scout Uniform (including a good shady hat)
A Dilly bag for sleepovers and camps
 
Scout Record books are  used to keep a record of  your Scouts ongoing Award Achievements. The book is also an instruction tool for how to achieve the Awards. Record books are available from the Scout Outdoor Centre
 
There are a number of very informative and useful handbooks produced for each section of the Scout Movement also available from the Scout Outdoor Centre in the ’’’Scouting Publications’’’ section.
 
For Scouts the Field Book for Australian Scouting is good reference for anybody who loves outdoor adventure and covers adventurous activities such as bush walking and hiking, abseiling, boating, flying, snow activities; preparation and equipment for outdoor adventure; navigation; knots; construction; outdoor emergencies, and weather and catering for the outdoors.
 
Other things that Scouts will need from time to time are things such as:
Raincoat
Comfortable backpack
Things for a camping
 
All these things should be well labeled with the Scouts name and if we are going to a District or State event label them with the Group name as well.
