Check out our Camping Cook Book for lots of great recipes perfect for the outdoors.
Plan ways to share the shopping and cooking, and involve campers of all ages.
Calculate servings knowing your campers
Plan the menus, make a list, and shop ahead:
Dried and canned foods early, marked for use
Meats pre-prepared if appropriate and frozen
Dairy, fruits, veggies, and breads last
Pre-prepare and/or pre-package everything possible to
reduce space, waste and save time at camp
Set up a hand-wash station in the camp kitchen requiring helpers to use it frequently and all campers to wash before eating!
A pre-wash bucket works great for preparation and meal-time clean-up. Scrape into it and strain
the debris to put into the garbage.
Use a 3-bucket wash system: hot soapy wash, hot rinse, 1 tbsp.chlorine bleach/gallon water soak, and air dry to eliminate outside contamination.
It’s about having fun and sharing — ENJOY!
