Days of Summer at Wa-Thik-Ane: Cooking at Camp

 

Adventure campers have been challenging themselves to cook their meals over fires these last few nights, and it’s been harder than they thought. It was well after dark when I passed by for a visit and they were doing clean up. They said it was difficult to get their fires going but they did and dinner was good. They learned the important lesson that cooking camp food is not always easy, but it is worth the work. Today at lunch they had Tacos in a Bag — a camp favorite. You cook the taco meat and then take an individual bag of Doritos, crush them in the bag, open it up, add your favorite toppings with your meat and voila: you have a meal with no dishes except for your utensil. Supper time was back to making a fire and cooking their foil pack dinners (meatballs, potatoes and veggies) on the fire.

The adventure campers worked up an appetite as they paddled on a clear calm lake to blueberry island this morning, had a swim off the rocks with life jackets on (which always seems to be a hit), hung out on the campers’ favorite island and then paddled back for lunch. The afternoon was busy with campers from all sites covering territory as they did their scavenger hunts and challenges to earn their Camp Tour Challenge crest. They needed to visit every campsite to earn their crest, but we like to throw in a challenge or two to make it interesting.

The friendships that grow between campers at summer camp are great but it is fantastic to be a part of those friendships and to see it in our volunteers and waterfront staff as well. There is definitely a camp family on these peaceful waters.
