Scouting Gear Overview - Cold Weather - Summer Camp Short trips If you are hiking for just the day and returning to base camp, a small day pack will meet most of your needs. Important things to pack would be:
  • multiple water bottles unless there are ample sources to top up your bottle
  • snacks to keep your energy up, such as granola bars, trail mix, beef jerky
  • lunch, if you are away from base camp that long
  • sunscreen
  • rain gear
  • first aid kit
