Yes, IMHO the intent of the cooking mb is that the cooking be done while
on an outing.
Req. 2. "Plan menus for three straight days of camping ..."
Req. 3 (not quoted) Prepare shopping list and utensil needs for the
meals planned in req. 2.
Req. 4. "Using the menus planned in requirement 2: Prepare and serve"
... the meals "planned in requirement 2." 4c also speaks about using
safe food handling practices and about cleaning up the (camp) site
The menus are to be planned for a camping situation. The shopping list
is to purchase foods to be used in a camping situation. It follows that
the cooking should also be done in a camping situation.
