Are equipment checks required?

Generally, yes.   Equipment checks are one of the ways we ensure the safety and comfort of all participants.   Our older boys and adults will be firm about making sure everyone has proper equipment by inspecting it for quality and fit.   Some in-troop "loaner" and rental gear is available to assist younger boys especially in having a full set of gear.

 

Adults participating in a trip as well as youth are required to complete an equipment check.
