We do a lot of outdoor activities and have tried to work towards not
having campfires. However, we have used the various other types of
cooking to demonstrate to girls that by moving outdoors you don't have to
give up decent meals! So we have made reflector ovens out of sticks and
tinfoil for individual pizzas (probably the troop's favorite meal),
cooked brownies and cakes in box ovens, and tried to use a solar cooker
for soup. The latter was not particularly successful but perhaps we'll
try again when the weather is warmer! Because our weather is generally
not as pleasant during "typical" meeting months (Sept.-May), we continue
to meet over the summer to extend our camping activities.
I'd be interested in learning what other troops do for camping during
hunting season. Since our woods are full of hunters, I personally don't
feel comfortable taking the girls out (which cuts down on some beautiful
fall opportunities!). Just curious!
Thanks for the recipes and other great tidbits!
