Dutch ovens are amazing. They are basically a stock pot made out of cast iron. They are heavy and very durable. Most commonly they are used to do slow cooking and baking in camp, generally over charcoal. Dutch ovens come in all sorts of different sizes from small to large. The size you need, depends on what your making and for how many people.It is worth noting that you can also get frying pans, kettles,...[More]

There are many different types of pots and pans you can use for your Kamp Kitchen. In my experience most Scout Groups use the ones that nest together. I find these are pretty good, especially the ones with no coatings - just plain aluminium. You need to be careful which set you buy as many of the kits now days are made out of flimsy metal that just wont hold up to the abuse Scouts...[More]

There are many ways to cook in camp, a stove is just one of the ways. I was recently reading on a forum about a Troop that does not allow stoves, all cooking has to be done using charcoal. The only problem with this, there are many parts of the country where you are not allowed any kind of “open flame”. For example the mountain near the city I live in six months out of...[More]

I recently had the chance to interview Garrett Batty, Director of Scout Camp the Movie. Hope you enjoy it and find it enlightening. Here is the interview....I understand that most of the actors are/were actually Scouts. While filming did they have time to work on any awards, badges, Climatology merit badge, etc? I understand you brought in a military honor guard to teach the Scout to put on a proper flag ceremony, is there anything...[More]

Hi all,Fuzzy here, we just got back from our summer camp. We are very tired after what has been a great week, but everything is a big mess. Tents needed to be dried and cleaned, equipment needed to be put away. We did not think it was fair that the leaders had to do everything so Scout and I offered to help. But for some odd reason we were told to go outside and play........We...[More]

We hear it all the time, go camping sleep on rocks and eat dirt. Just because we are camping and in the great outdoors does not mean what we eat should rocky and dirty or even bland. Or if your Scout are like the ones around me with loads of hot sauce, even in cereal. Anyway the point is there is no reason you can't take a spice rake with you. What I found works...[More]

Where should I start... well as you might have guessed this section is all about knives and cutting stuff up. As I have said before... Safety First and Safety Always. The knives should always be kept clean and sharp. A dull knife is just asking for big problems and if its a dirty knife even more problems. When Scouts are using knives and other sharp objects there should be adult leaders around to, shall we...[More]

First I would like to ensure we all are on the same page by defining what I mean by cooking utensils. In simple terms these are things like spoons, spatulas, tongs, turning forks, etc that we use to cook with. I will not cover knives in the post as I have a dedicated post planned called “Cutting it all up” for that topic.In the picture you can see that I use a tool box to...[More]
