The things we forget
Consumables are generally the things we forget and have to go town for. The following lists may help make the camp experience more enjoyable.
Here is a list of a few health-related items you will need:
||Several pump pots of SPF30+ to be kept in the dining room.
||Several pump pots in the dining room, and at the gate for when the Scouts and visitors come on site.
||Placed at the gateway along with a water container so that people can wash their hands on the way back from the toilet. Also placed in the dining room and the entrance to the kitchen.
||For washing the dishes, bench tops and tables etc.
|After sun lotion
||In case of sun burn.
Here is a list of a few food related items you might need:
||Salt, pepper, oil, sugar, curry powder, mustard (for leaders).
||Just in case.
||For a batch of scones perhaps?
||For sweet and sour, or wasp stings.
||Packets of sauces just in case, plus tomato sauce.
|Packets of soup
||For someone who is cold, or has low blood sugar, etc.
||For chilly bins and injuries.
||A range of plastic airtight containers for storage.
Here is a list of a few more items you will need:
|First aid kit
||A good quality troop sized kit to cover the cuts, scratches, splinters, bruises, burns and headaches that occur every day. Follow up with St John on site as required.
|Tea towels or chux cloths
||For the kitchen
||Enough cups for every one
||Enough cutlery for every one
||Consider using these as it reduces the risk of stomach illness by a huge margin but unless stacked after each meal they will require more rubbish bags to get rid of them.
||Chux or similar.
||Goldilocks, steelo or similar pads.
