Tuesday, July 30th
If you have ever been to camp you will know that a big part of the daily routine is cooking and eating. Are we traditional in the way we cook? Not really. Of course, there is the traditional opening night barbecue when Super Eagle cooks up a stack of hamburgers for everyone and our wonderful food ladies Bubbles and Squeak send down salads and veggies. Have you done your dishes (yes each camper washes their own dishes at camp), then it is ice cream sandwich for dessert.
As you know from last week Pathfinders dehydrated there own meat and used several different types of trail stoves to cook. This weeks’ Pathfinders used the good old buddy burners or as some know it the vagabond stove. Grill cheese is the perfect lunch for a buddy burner and these talented campers have it down pat!
Then there is the twist to how we eat occasionally at camp. Sometimes at the picnic table,
on the trail, or in the marquis at it’s tables.
But, when we want to challenge ourselves the fun way to eat is “silly utensil night”. Campers have a pile of cooking utensils to choose from. You want to be early in the food line when dinner is ready because you don’t want to have to pick from the last remnants.
Oh the chuckles we have with this one! Super Eagle definitely sees a cooking challenge crest coming next year as a piece of the WWWTA pie crest.
Tomorrow we say goodbye to our younger campers, the Sparks and Brownies, as they head home after their three night camp. A busy camp it has been with a ‘Sleep under the Stars’ on the first night,
hitting the trails for camp tour,
visiting a camp friend
and all the swimming and boating! Thanks for coming to camp with us! Our older Expedition and Adventure campers will be rising early and heading off to Ferrata and zip line, stay tuned for some arias shots!
