Checklist for Winter Camp


The forecast for Camp Attakapass looks to be a touch of Louisiana winter meaning lows in the mid-30s and highs in the 60s. Rain is expected our last day, so rain gear is essentials. Pack for cold evenings. Use the following checklist to make sure you have the right equipment.

See you Friday night at 6:30 at the troop trailer to stow your gear.
