Don’t assume your Scouts know how to sleep warm while camping, it’s important to instruct them and be sure they are properly equipped. In especially cold weather changing clothes before getting in a sleeping bag can make a big difference, as can having a pair of loosely fitting wool or fleece socks just for sleeping. Sleeping bag insulation will be compressed when it is packed ss fluffing it up and redistributing the insulation is important.We need to sleep warm while camping for peace of mind and safety. We’ll be more prone to make mistakes or missteps if haven’t slept well. A good sleeping bag, adequate insulation from the ground and warm synthetic or wool clothing are key to nighttime comfort.
