For the Jamboral we are camping in an area that is not necessarily designated as a camp ground, so please plan accordingly and come prepared. The Deseret Peak Complex will not supply any camping equipment or amenities.

Scouts, we recommend you refer to pages 292 through 295 of the Boy Scout Handbook for a suggested equipment list. You may also want to search on the Internet for suggested packing lists for a national jamboree, since this event is similar to a national jamboree.

There are some items that we remind you to consider as you pack:

  • Be prepared for lots of sun — The encampment site is situated in the Tooele Valley and is largely desert. Plan on being in the sun most of the evening on Friday and during the day on Saturday so bring sunblock and plenty of water.
  • Trash containers — The encampment will not provide trash containers, although we will have some garbage service. Bring trash cans and liners, as necessary. Think ahead to how you can minimize the amount of trash you generate. There are no fires, so burn barrels are not allowed and you will not be able to burn trash in fires.
  • Merit badge and activity areas — Those responsible for merit badge and activity areas may want to bring some kind of shade, table, chairs, and a large water container.
  • You may also consider bringing a lawn chair.
