SEALS What Will I Need?

What Will I Need?

The S.E.A.L.S. weekend spent at Belk Scout Camp begins with check-in at the dining hall at 6:30pm on Friday and ends at 11:00am on Sunday. Please make arrangements for scouts to attend the entire course during these times. The S.E.A.L.S. schedule is very full and S.E.A.L.S. participants will not want to miss any activities.

Additionally, there is a mandatory meeting for scoutmasters and advisers held on Friday night beginning at 7:30pm. The mandatory meeting lasts approximately one hour.

Please park in the dining hall parking lot. S.E.A.L.S. participants may bring their gear up to the dining hall for check-in.

The gear checklist below covers the equipment that S.E.A.L.S. participants need to bring with them. They will not have to transport their gear very far, but it should be packed to facilitate carrying and keeping organized.

In addition, please note any physical limitations or medical needs on the completed medical form so that the S.E.A.L.S. adult staff can be prepared before the course begins. In addition, please review the S.E.A.L.S. menu. If the S.E.A.L.S. menu does not meet your special dietary needs, please bring your own ready-to-eat meals, as the S.E.A.L.S. schedule does not allow for individual cook times.

The staff looks forward to working with your scouts and seeing them at S.E.A.L.S.!
