Sat,26 Oct7:00 am1 day, 6 hoursWilderness SurvivalSt. Anne, ILOn Saturday, October 26, our brave scouts will be honing their wilderness survival skills near St. Anne, IL. They will depart first thing in the morning (Saturday) and spend the day practicing skills like primitive fire building, foraging for food/water, wilderness first aid, signaling, and shelter building. They will sleep in their own shelter Saturday night, and return home none-the-worse-for-wear Sunday morning. We will cover many or all of the Wilderness First Aid Merit Badge requirements. Scouts who already have this badge are needed to teach the other scouts at each station.

Some special notes apply for this campout, since we will NOT be bringing the trailer and our usual comforts.

If the scout wants to earn the merit badge, he will have to put together and bring his own personal survival kit. This is a requirement of the merit badge, not to mention they may need it!
There is some latitude as to what goes INTO the kit; the scout should consider what might be needed/useful in a survival situation. As a suggestion, put together a SMALL (like Altoids-tin size or a bit bigger) basic survival kit that can be carried anywhere (what good is a survival kit if you don't have it with you?). Pack the rest of your gear in a daypack. You should be able to fit everything you need for this trip in a daypack, with the exception of a sleeping bag and tarp. The troop has some tarps which will be available but you should bring one if you have one at home.

Examples of things to put in a small survival kit.
Matches, preferably waterproof. Snap off half of matchstick to save space
Dryer lint, cotton balls, or other tinder for making fires
Candle (shave square to save space)
Flint/steel (processed with a saw striker is best)
Magnifying glass (for starting a fire/first aid)
Needle and thread
Fish hooks and line (not needed for this particular weekend but good to have)
Compass (luminous liquid-filled button type)
Small flashlight (keychain size?)
Ibuprofen
Antibiotic ointment (small packet)
Water sterilizing tablets
Band-aids
Signal mirror (or polish the lid of the tin to make it reflective)
Safety pins

Daypack item suggestions:
Flashlight/headlamp
Knife
Sunblock
Insect repellant
Change of clothes
Water bottle(s) and water. Should plan to bring about 3 liters of water; there is no running water at the camp
Rain gear
Plate/spork
High-energy snacks like granola bars, dried meat
Small pencil and notebook
Paracord
Plastic garbage bag(s)
Duct tape
