You can start with the basics and build up your camping equipment over time. If you’re new to Pathfinders and don’t have all the equipment you need for a camp, talk to your Unit Leader who may be able to help you find a temporary solution. As children are required to share a tent on camps, your child may not need to purchase their own tent for a little while.
