Packing for Northland Encampment!

Northland Encampment is a HUGE campout every two yaers for the girls in Girl Scout Troops from the Kansas City North area.  I am fortunate enough to be on Staff.  I am in charge of Tent City.  What’s Tent City?  Oh, it’s just going to house about 400-500 Scouts and Adults per night.  I am super excited about it.  I have put together a checklist of supplies just for the camping part.  I didn’t include the food because I am going to post the recipes after camp.

Here is my ultimate packing list:
