All these messages about summer camps sure do bring back memories.
I keep reading messages about the pros and cons of having a dining
hall at summer camp. I went to girl scout camp every summer for
two weeks doing my girl scouting years. We had a dining hall at
camp (Camp Pisgah in NC) but we still cooked out one meal a day.
One/third of the cooked meals was breakfast, one/third lunch
(mabe these weren't cooked) and one/third supper.
For the dining hall meals, you had a turn where you "hopped" tables
for a couple of days. All my summer camp experiences were great.
My brothers all went to Camp Danial Boone for their summer camp.
Their troop would backpack in to camp. I don't remember how many
nights their backpacker was. I don't really know how there meals
at the camp were done, but I do remember that I always enjoyed
coming to the ceremony they would do one night.
Someone mention that doing their cooking a camp, they would cook
a cake in a dutch oven with charcoal. We use to do that when
our girl scout troop went camping. We would make a pineapple
up-side-down cake and it was delicious.
Thank you to all who responed about my questions with the cubscout
