Zombie Invasion FAQ's
Q: What do We Wear?
A: White T-Shirts Required for Saturday Night - No Class A Uniforms
Due to the nature of a Zombie Invasion, there will be some fake blood and other substances getting on the Scout's clothes on Saturday night. Each Scout should bring a 'disposable' white T-Shirt, that they won't mind getting stained with 'fake blood'. This can be picked up at a thrift shop for a couple of dollars, or on sale at Pennys for $5.99 or K-mart too.
Pants or coats worn during the event may get fake blood on them as well, so please don't send the 'nice' stuff to camp this weekend. Painting clothes are appropriate for this event.
We will not be requiring Class A uniforms to be worn during the weekend, so please leave them home.
Q: What about the Firebuilding Kits?
A: Each Patrol is required to bring a one-gallon Ziploc bag, containing enough tinder, kindling and other wood to start a small fire. This will be used to compete at one of the stations, so don't forget this important item. Patrol Leaders are responsible for this item.
Q: Do we need to bring Firewood
Q: Will the Trading Post be Open?
A: The Trading Post will be open during the afternoon on Saturday. They have candy, peanut stuffed pretzels, beef jerky, pop and frozen pizza's, as well as Hahobas T-shirts, water bottles, knives, etc. for sale.

Q: My Troop is on the waiting list, When will we find out if we are going or not?
