Dear Scouts and Scouters,
The assemblage of documents contained in this package is from several sources: the Camp Promotion package is something our troop members prepared several years ago to encourage Rose Bowl District troops to camp more frequently. We offered this presentation in our role at that time as the Camp Promotion Team for our Order of the Arrow chapter. We also develop the Ten Essentials sheet, Equipment Recommendations, Recipes and Backpacker’s Dutch oven sheets. The two sheets detailing various foods and their nutritional properties come from a 1987 publication Adventure Organizer/Planner, by Adventurease; it’s full of very useful information. The Check List & packing diagram is from a REI handout, also several years old but quite useful.
This is Troop1’s seventh effort at demonstrating a backpacking site at Expo after many years of conducting the First Aid Merit Badge Booth. Our previous booths were well received by visitors who contributed some thoughts and suggestions. We welcome your comments and hope to learn as much as we hope to teach. We may be old dogs, but we’re always ready to learn new tricks. We hope you have enjoyed our presentation, taken something of value to your camping program away with you and perhaps have had the opportunity to share your wisdom with us.
Yours in Scout Spirit, TROOP 1
