The sample site below is great, however remember
to harp on 'age appropriateness'. It's not likely
that a Cub outing should require topographical
maps, compasses or GPS units. If it does than
perhaps it's not age appropriate.
I try to remind attendees that Cub camping is not
Boy Scout camping and the people who "know everything
about camping" have to step back and realize the
intentions of this course.

another great source is www.rei.com browse around and you will find several
informational articles example:
where you get a list of the 10 essentials, each with an explanation, and
then more information on how to choose a "Compass"....
you can get some good things like picking a sleeping bag here.
Likewise to DNR, check with the State Parks for what is around... you might
just get freebies for the class!
best of training!
