Heads Up – Polar Bear Is Near

Saturday January 13th is Polar Bear!

For polar bear scouts will build a shelter and sleep in it for the night.  To give scouts and parents a heads up, please keep in mind that scouts need the following gear and supplies.

  • Warm winter sleeping bag and/or extra sleeping bag and blankets.
  • ground pad
  • warm hats, gloves, snow boots and warm coat
  • thermal or fleece sleeping layer
  • warm sleeping socks
  • fleece neck gator (optional but nice)
  • tarp and rope

We will share much more information about polar bear soon, but please keep these items in mind as you’re out and about during holiday shopping and sharing Christmas gift ideas with family.
