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.
I love to cook, both at home and at camp. Here is a list of the recipes on my site.
Here is a snack for your Cubs in the kitchen. This one is simple enough that they should be able to do most of it themselves.
Fresh baked bread tastes wonderful when you are out on a chilly campout. This is a casserole bread which is pretty easy to make.
You could count this for Bear requirement 9b: With an adult, make snacks for the next den meeting. It isn’t the healthiest thing in the world, but it probably a little better than the bags of chips or ding-dongs the parents used to send for our den when we had our meetings right after school.
Cub Scouts love to cook. They might need some help peeling and cutting the apples for this recipe, but they should be able to handle the rest of it with supervision. And they will love getting their fingers messy making the crumb topping.
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.
This is a nice recipe to make in the fall when fresh apples from local orchards are readily available. When assembled, this should look like two lips (the red sides of the apples) with two teeth (the marshmallows).
A little modification to a basic chicken and dumplings recipe combined with some preparation beforehand at home makes this an easy camp meal.
Scouts always enjoy playing with their food! This would make a nice snack for any den meeting based on one of the ecology lessons.

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.
Cub Scouts can make this snack at home for themselves or it would work as a snack at a den meeting.
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!
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!
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.
This variation of campfire potatoes is hearty enough to serve as a main dish.
What’s the best way to get a picky eater to have a healthy snack? Make it funny!
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.
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.

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.
A snack made with crackers and pretzels. This recipe does not require any cooking, so it can be made at a meeting even if you don’t have access to a kitchen.
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.
A hearty breakfast recipe with meat, eggs, and hashbrowns. This recipe includes instructions for cooking outdoors with charcoal and indoors in an oven.
