Each camper, except fifth year candidates, is expected to provide one cubic foot of pipestone wood during his week in camp. This may be fulfilled by bringing the wood to camp on Sunday (tightly wrapped with twine) or by gathering it in the camp by Thursday afternoon. This is hardwood only, which has lost its bark naturally and burns quietly. It should be reasonably straight with no branches or protruding stubs, approximately twelve inches long (broken, not sawn), no thinner than the little finger and no thicker than the thumb.
Fifth year candidates need not bring wood to camp but should complete part of their leadership requirement by closely supervising the quality and quantity of wood collected by other campers.
