Organizational Picnic Kits

The Outdoor Recreation section of the Force Support Squadron will issue Picnic Kits at no cost to official Squadrons or units supported by Scott AFB. The unit Commander must provide the Outdoor Recreation Equipment Loan section with a letter confirming that the event is a morale type event for the unit members. These kits are issued free to organizations in support of esprit de corps functions.

Must type and have the form digitally signed by your Unit Commander before sending information. Reservations must be made 30 days or less prior to the date of in-person pick-up.
