We tell kids in our scouting program that bag ratings are survival ratings - a 0 degree bag will keep you alive, but cold, at 0 degrees. We tell parents they should purchase bags rated 20 degrees colder than our expected lowest temperatures - at our camp in Boonsboro for our spring weekend the overnight average is 20 degrees F, so we recommend 0 degree bags with at least one available cover blanket.

We also teach the kids to change undergarments and socks right before bedding down.
