Campout Cooking

Meal preparation is a combination of nutrition, recipes, food handling safety, meal planning, preparation and cleanup. The Cooking Merit Badge is an Eagle required merit badge.

This page has been created with the idea that our patrols and Scouts have easier access to recipes and methods that will facilitate cooking in the outdoors.  

You can use or to enjoy camping food recipes and resources from Scouts all over the world. Find dutch oven recipe ideas for cooking without utensils, base camp meals, trail food, and more.

Dutch Oven Stack

The Scouts love dutch oven and foil pack cooking.  Mostly because the preparation is easy and little cleanup. You will find these sites helpful when buying for and preparing these types of meals.
