Dutch Oven

Special Cooking Troop Program Feature for Scouts BSA

The Boy Scout Planning Guide suggests a  Special Cooking Troop Program Feature for June 2013.  This cooking program feature offers the opportunity to explore cooking with special equipment and techniques, including Dutch oven cooking, foil packs, and camp stoves.

The plans for the Special Cooking  troop program feature can be found in  Volume 3 of Troop Program Features from BSA:

Here is a program feature for a troop that has gone beyond cooking basics. Scouts will learn how to use the Dutch oven and reflector oven and practice cooking with camp stoves, charcoal, and aluminum foil. Since good meals are so important in camp, your patrol leaders’ council will want to use this feature as soon as most Scouts have mastered the basics of cooking.

Special Cooking Programs

Younger scouts can work on their early rank requirements, including menus and cooking, fire safety, and camp stoves.  Older scouts can earn the Cooking merit badge.

The featured activity for this month is a camp banquet where Scouts can share all of the dishes they created using special cooking techniques.
