                          is 4 and maximum is 8. If you can’t make a normal patrol, please consider teaming up
                          with another group to make the minimum patrol roster of 4.

AWARDS:                   Awards will be established for patrols and packs.

EQUIPMENT:                Units will be responsible for their own food, personal and group equipment (i.e. water,
                          tents, stoves, coolers, cooking and clean up gear, sleeping bags, and personal items).
                          Scout motto: Be Prepared! Bring enough plastic bags for your trash.

LOW IMPACT:               This will be a LOW IMPACT WDYB. Please ensure that all attending this event are
                          familiar with this type of camping and understand the principles involved.

FIRST AID:                First Aid will be available at the Staff area. Units are encouraged to address minor First
                          Aid situations within the unit. Any serious injury, illness, or situation with which the unit
                          personnel are uncomfortable should be taken to the WDYB First Aid area immediately

MISCELLANEOUS:

*       Each unit will be responsible for administering either an event or a function in the WDYB campout! Your
        unit must be prepared to run the event including supplying any equipment necessary for your event. This
        will require participation from adults in your unit. This will be fun and go a long way in fostering a team
        spirit between adults in the individual units, and a collective team spirit between all units in the FLAMING
        ARROW DISTRICT! (Volunteering early will help you in getting the event/function that you prefer.)

*       Visitors are welcome and invited after 9:00 AM on Saturday. Visitors are welcome at the evening campfire,
        but should plan to depart the campground no later than 10:00PM.

*       Yes, separate toilet facilities for men and women will be available.
