SEALS What Will I Need?

The S.E.A.L.S. weekend spent at Belk Scout Camp begins with check-in at the Health Lodge at 6:15pm on Friday and ends at 11:35am 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.

After completing the health check-in at the Health Lodge, drive to the dining hall and park in the parking lot. S.E.A.L.S. participants should bring their gear to the dining hall and place their gear in the designated areas.

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.!
