Tents: Care, Pitch, Repair


Tents, replacement poles, elastic, spare pegs.


Working in small teams (3 max), Scouts must pitch and check the inventory for a tent and identify any missing or broken parts. Clean, lubricate zips, replace missing pegs and replace any broken sections of poles. The tent must then be packed away ready for next camp.
