Devil Pups is a non-profit organization designed to help teens 14-17 from all backgrounds gain self-confidence and learn to take responsibility for their actions. People wonder “Why the name Devil Pups?” The term “Devil Dogs” was used by German soldiers to describe Marines fighting in World War I. The Marines who organized this youth citizenship program chose the term “Devil Pups” to describe the quality of teen who can complete this program.

Preparing for Camp
you do not already have hiking books for
Devil Pup camp, now would be a good time to get them and get them broken
in. Here is a photo of a boot that is a good camp
boot – you will need protection for ankles with all the activities at
camp. Watch for sales at Big 5 - don't buy heavy boots that won't
"breathe" - they will get a lot of wear at camp. Wear them every day for
two or three hours
to break them in.
As for the rest of your packing, please see this list on the Devil Pup website: PACKING LIST Parents: If you have not already made reservations or have family or friends to stay with for graduation, please make your reservations now.
