*A blanket bedroll consists of a waterproof canvas or heavy plastic sheet measuring approx. 5’x7′, two blankets, a sheet, and two 8′ in pieces of manila rope.

**Bring THREE TIMES the amount of medication you normally carry to camp so that a wrangler or adult leader can carry a spare supply on the trail, with the remainder available at HQ. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR INHALERS and EPI-PINS: elevation, dirt, ash, and pollens unique to the area may aggravate even slight respiratory conditions; and there are many vectors on the trail that can cause allergic reaction.
