IMO, the time spent cooking and cleaning at summer camp is counter-productive.
Those skills are better taught on weekend campouts when it doesn't interfere
with activities only available at summer camp whether the activities be merit
badges, craftwork, marksmanship, or whatever else. Perhaps once or twice during
the week I could see it, but not every day.
