We have put together this kit list to help support you getting the right equipment for your child. It is appreciated that this may seem a little too much for beavers to start with, but in purchasing the right kit at the start it will save you money and will take them through their scouting journey and onto Explorers.
In the first section we have given you examples of the items which require a little investment but will setup your child for every camp and adventure offered in scouting. Underneath this section we have then provided a list of cloths, accessories and items we don’t want young people to bring on camp.
We have made some recommendations on the standard of equipment required and included links to Go Outdoors, where you can get 10% Discount by filling in this short form: Scouts Go Out Doors or alternatively take your child’s Necker as proof of being a member of scouting.
