Expedition Challenge Badge
Expedition Challenge 2019 - Kit List

Scouts will need to pack two bags for Expedition Challenge, a day bag and an overnight bag. Please note there may be additional items added to the kit list depending on the activity plans of each hike group. For additional advice on choosing equipment, please visit our Get Kitted Out For Scouts page, or pick up a Go Outdoors leaflet from the scout leader team.

Day Bag
This needs to be a comfortable bag as scouts will carry this for the duration of the walk. There needs to be some space available as the hike group will be given a first aid kit and survival kit to carry in their bags too.
  • Packed Lunch (Plenty to eat including some sweets as a source of sugar).
  • Plenty to drink, ideally 1 litre or more of still water.
  • Waterproofs
    • Ideally a waterproof coat and trousers.
    • Needs to be a waterproof rather than a soft shell jacket.
  • An additional jumper / layer.
  • A torch.

Clothing for the Walk
  • Scouts should wear comfortable clothing to walk in, shorts are a good option however it would be worth packing a pair of trousers in their day bag just in case!
  • Thick socks
  • Hiking boots

Overnight Bag
The overnight bag will go onto the van or trailer and will not be available until scouts complete their walk.
  • Sleeping bag
  • Full change of clothes
  • Small pillow
  • Additional hoodie / coat
