Cold weather Camping Overview


Camping and other outdoor activities taking place in cold weather require additional preparation and consideration. Every scout and leader should remember the acronym COLD. It stands for:


Clean: the person, their clothing, and equipment MUST BE clean  

Do not Overheat: when bundled up it's easy to do, and overheating leads to chills

Layers: numerous items of clothing/bedding are better than one    

Dry: stay dry; moisture draws heat
