Adult Cooking on Campouts

Troop camping works on the patrol method: each patrol plans their meals, buys their supplies, and cooks for their patrol.
Adult leaders stay out of the boys' way and take care of their own menus, shopping, and cooking, acting as their own patrol.

Many boys tend to value fast preparation and easy clean-up over a warm, tasty, filling meal.  Adults can lead by example and demonstrate a wider range of meal possibilities.
