I attended national camp school there in 1968. They convinced me that
patrol cooking is not only possible, it is desirable--even for camp
school. The key seemed to be a workable menu and good equipment. I
recommend a visit for anyone who doubts patrol cooking at summer camp.

we did that at group gatherings in the cement campfire arena!
