Second Class is the rank a Scout can earn after Tenderfoot. The requirements for Second Class continue to teach the youth to the skills needed to advance in Scouts BSA.
Second Class Cooking and Tools Requirements
Mountain Man Breakfast Casserole is a hearty breakfast recipe with meat, eggs, and hashbrowns. This recipe includes instructions for cooking outdoors with charcoal and indoors in an oven.
Now that our troop is encouraging more scouts to be grubmasters, a common response is “But I don’t know what to do!”. So I put together a set of very basic instructions to help them out. This is at least enough to get them started.
A fuzz stick is a fire starting aid and a good way to practice knife skills. A fuzz stick is a stick which has been shaved on the side, leaving thin scraps of wood. These scraps catch fire easily, which helps get your fire going.
A Scout who completes the requirement for the Totin’ Chip certification shows that he or she has the knowledge and skills to safely handle wood tools, such as an ax, hatchet, pocketknife, or hand saw.
Dutch oven cooking is one of my favorite ways to make meals and desserts at camp. Put the ingredients in, put some charcoal on the top and bottom, come back later, and voila! you have a delicious dish. Do you have a Dutch oven recipe you’d like to share? Contact me and I’ll share it.
