Camp Meals for Cub Scouts

We have found that having Cub and parent _assemble_ their own meals from
prepared materials works well, i.e., having scoops of hamburger, cut up
potatoes, carrots and onions works well. BTW, we make our "foil dinners"
wrapped in leaves of cabbage before wrapping in foil. Gives great flavor
and the cabbage usually takes the burn if there is any and can be thrown
A favorite variety is shrimp, snow peas, red pepper strips, sliced
mushrooms, a little ginger slice, etc.
But, don't be locked into foil meals. Scrounge some young people's cookbooks
and try lots of different things.
For breakfasts, we like to do eggs in half an orange but a favorite is a
pancake feed. A couple of parents and a couple of cubs cook pancakes for
everyone. Others make juice, cook sausage or bacon, etc.
Over the years, I found that a cooking crew preparing for everyone usually
worked best. On our pack family camp that meant that three dens handled
each meal. One set up the dining area, one cooked, and one handled cleanup.
We usually had things for the other dens to do so no one was left out!
