All Patrol Leaders contact your Patrol members to make sure all assignments are covered

As always, even if you are on car-camping campout , make sure your gear is packed in a backpack (except new scouts that don't have one yet, although you will need one by next fall). This will help you leave stuff at home, that you don't need.
