If the camp supplies the food and gear for the meals, the Scouts in the
troop really have no part in the planning, IMHO. The in camp meals would
not qualify for Requirement 2 (planning) of the MB. The rest of the
requirements are really tied to Req. 2. Since Req. is not met Reqs. 3 and 4
cannot be met.
Just my opinion,
