Gear

Scout uniforms can be purchased via the troop.

An official scout shirt costs around 40 CHF.

For camping, the Troop provides tents and cooking equipment.

Your scout will be required to have items such as the following:

Sleeping bag: good quality, made for camping. Look for a sleeping bag which will keep your son warm in freezing temperatures. Our scouts generally camp regardless of the weather!

Sleeping roll or mat: Standard sleeping mat available at most camping shops. Inflatable sleeping mats, known as "flocks" are also possible - not to be confused with inflatable mattresses.

Backpack : usually with a hip belt and internal frame it should be able to pack all equipment (including sleeping bag) without the need for additional bags.

Lightweight backpack / day pack – for shorter hikes

Hiking boots ‐ Good quality, with Gore‐Tex that will keep feet dry and comfortable

Canteen (or water bottle) & Mess kit ‐ Please ensure that this is good quality and will last for some time

Flashlight – lightweight and water resistant



Costs

The Annual registration fee is 300 CHF per year for the first child and 250 CHF for the second and subsequent child from the same family.

Outdoor activities are not included in the fees and depend on the activity. We try to keep the costs reasonable and promote low cost events such as camping.

Fees should be paid to the troop account:
