I like to encourage leaders to eat with patrols. This allows
them to monitor who is eating and what they are eating. We will
review menus before every campout to check for completeness.
Granted, the adults may get some in-edible food sometimes, but
it also allows them to give some cooking advice during and
I have also seen where adults cooking by themselves gives some
scouts some better ideas than hot dogs/hamburgers/cheese steaks
etc, etc, etc. I have seen some eyes widden in disbelief when I
have cooked stir fry in camp or prepared 3 complete meals
with utensil-less cooking (and NO tin foil!).
Both work, but I like to see the adults eatig with the scouts.
