SCOUTLOOK '24 AUGUST 11 TO 17, 2024


A suggested equipment list has been included in the ScoutLook registration package. Although the amount of clothing and other gear may vary and is dependent on each participant's individual needs, please keep in mind that ScoutLook is a wilderness camp and consideration should be give to minimizing the amount of clothing and gear required (for example, one jacket can be both water and wind proof).

As part of their backcountry camping experience, a ScoutLook participant's gear should fit in two packs. A suitable backpack or dry sack for the bulk of their gear and a smaller day pack that can also be used to carry a few personal items (such as a water bottle, jacket, sun screen, insect repellent and extra clothing) while out on their daily activities. Because gear may get wet during the crossing to and from the camp site and while on canoe outings, special attention should be given to ensuring that gear is adequately water proofed.

ScoutLook operates out of the Alloway Wilderness Reserve and there are no facilities for participants to recharge electronic equipment. Along with the possibility that electronic equipment can be damaged or lost, we recommend that participants DO NOT bring electronic equipment (Smartphone, game systems, tablets, radios) to Scoutlook. Electronics such as digital cameras and handheld GPS units can be brought to the camp.

Helpful Hints:

- For water proofing, backpacks can be lined with a garbage bag

- Books should be kept in zip-loc bags

- Digital cameras should be water proof/resistant or kept in a ziploc bag

- Hats should have wide brims to cover the face, ears and neck

- Gear should be labled with the camper's first and last names

- No disposable mess kits are allowed (paper/foam plates, cups or cutlery)
