Dutch Oven Spinach Rice Casserole Recipe This camp spinach rice casserole can serve as a vegetarian main dish or a side dish. It is cooked in a Dutch oven.
Lemon Berry Dutch Oven Cobbler This cobbler recipe is lighter than some of the other ones I make which have a lot of butter. In fact, I had diet 7Up on hand instead of regular, so I used that, making this a fairly low calorie dessert.
Venturing Ranger Award Core Requirement - Cooking To earn the Venturing Ranger award, a young man or woman must complete eight core requirements and four electives. One of the core requirements is cooking.
A Scouter Is ... Apron (Spoof on the Boy Scout Law) Spoof on Boy Scout Law Apron: A Scouter Is... Capable, Generous Determined Patient Dependable Trusting Hopeful Fearless Flexible Humble and Exhausted
Woodgas Camp Stove Review This is a self contained camp stove which burns twigs, charcoal, wood pellets, etc. It has a small battery powered fan to draw air.
Dutch Oven Breakfast Quiche Here is an easy camp breakfast recipe for those who enjoy some eggs in the morning. I really enjoy Dutch oven recipes at camp because you can put all of your ingredients in and relax while it cooks. And relaxing and enjoying the moment is part of what really makes camping great.
Ding Dong Cherry Cobbler This recipe is a twist on the Dutch oven cobbler. My sons like making this just because of the novelty of the ding dongs in the cobbler. It is pretty easy to make. Most patrols with at least one experienced camp cooks could do this without difficulty.
Cooking Merit Badge for Boy Scouts Our Boy Scout troop is planning a campout in the spring based on the Cooking merit badge. I am a counselor for this badge, so I am working with the youth campmaster to help him plan the activities.
One Pot Hoppin' John Recipe Hoppin' John is traditionally served on New Year's Day to bring luck through the year. You can have in anytime though. This recipe works at camp or you can cook it at home on your stove.
Pumpkin Crunch Recipe This is one of our favorite Dutch oven recipes. DS made this recently at a Troop meeting where the Boy Scouts showed off their cooking skills. This recipe also won first prize at a Camporee cooking contest, so I guess it is an "award winning" recipe.
Camp Chicken and Stuffing Recipe LC earned his cooking merit badge at our second summer camp this past summer. Meals at this camp were served in a dining hall, but the counselor brought lots of ingredients and they cooked something every afternoon. So at about 3 or 4PM we would get invited over to the campsite to sample dishes for an afternoon snack. This one was LC's favorite.
Banana Boats This is a classic camp recipe. It is easy and doesn't take many ingredients. Enjoy some while spending an evening around a campfire.
Menu Planning with Webelos My Webelos den is going to district camporee at the end of the month. So at last night's Outdoorsman focused meeting, we did some menu planning.
Toasted Peeps When perfectly toasted, the sugar coating on the Peep caramelizes. And the marshmallow insides becomes really gooey, just like in a regular toasted marshmallow
Easy Chicken Quesadillas This was one of their favorite recipes. They all made their own quesadillas, and so our vegetarian just didn't put chicken in his. Everyone was well fed and happy.
Hearty Minestrone Recipe Although this recipe has "minestrone" in the name, it is more like a stew than a soup. So if you are looking for a traditional minestrone recipe, keep searching. If you are looking for an easy to put together camp meal, then try this.
Foil Pack Dinners The most typical foil pack ingredients are ground beef, potatoes, carrots, and onions. But don't get stuck in a rut! Try some new combinations.
Herb Casserole Bread Recipe Fresh baked bread tastes wonderful when you are out on a chilly campout. This is a casserole bread which is pretty easy to make.
Spaghetti Dinner I am taking my Webelos I den camping this weekend. We're going to make this for dinner Saturday night. We're going to serve it with fruit, salad, and garlic bread.
Camp Chicken and Dumplings Recipe A little modification to a basic chicken and dumplings recipe combined with some preparation beforehand at home makes this an easy camp meal.
Easy Scrambled Eggs at Camp Scrambled eggs make a great camp breakfast. They are easy, quick, and provide a substantial meal for Scouts preparing for a busy day. But getting the eggs to camp is not always so easy.
Grilled Honey Lime Pork Chops Recipe This is a really easy camping recipe. Do a little preparation before you leave for camp and you will have delicious grilled pork chops with almost no cleanup.
Ham and Sweet Potato Packets Recipe Don't get stuck in a rut when making foil packets. This variation of the hobo meal features ham and sweet potatoes. Perfect for a fall campout!
Green Chili Stew Recipe This probably isn't very authentic, but it is a tasty stew which is easy to make at camp. Serve a nice green salad with it and you have a meal!
Sweet Corn Bread Recipe This is a very sweet corn bread. In some areas, this would be called corn cake. The sweetness of the bread goes well with spicy foods like chili or ham and beans with lots of hot pepper sauce.
Loaded Campfire Potatoes This variation of campfire potatoes is hearty enough to serve as a main dish.
Campfire Cinnamon Crescents Recipe Here is another easy recipe for summer camp season. The only real trick to these is to cook them slowly so they cook all the way through.
Smacos Recipe If your Scouts need a chocolate marshmallow fix, but you don't have a fire for some reason, you can fix these on a camp stove with a griddle.
Quick Jambalaya This jambalaya recipe is not very authentic, but it is easy enough to prepare at camp.
Black Forest Dump Cake Recipe There are lots of different dump cake combinations out there. Chocolate and cherries is one of my favorites.
Walking Tacos Recipe Here is a fun recipe for a hearty camp snack. If the taco meat is cooked beforehand, they can put this together pretty quickly.
Easy Stew Topped Mashed Potatoes Recipe This recipe is a good recipe for when you have time to let a stew simmer. Serve some fruit on the side and maybe some bread and you have a full meal.
Pizza Quesadillas Recipe Here is an easy and quick lunch for a campout. You can cook the quesadillas on a piece of foil on the grill or on a cast iron griddle.
Foil Pack Hawaiian Chicken and Rice Recipe Foil packs are great for camp, but sometimes we get tired of having burger, potatoes, and carrots every time. Here is a different twist on the hobo dinner.
Camp McMuffins Recipe One of the challenges of camp cooking is the amount of time it takes. Here is an easy and quick recipe for a breakfast at camp. It doesn't require a lot of preparation or ingredients, but you still get a good breakfast to start a busy day.
Mountain Man Breakfast Recipe A hearty breakfast recipe with meat, eggs, and hashbrowns. This recipe includes instructions for cooking outdoors with charcoal and indoors in an oven.
