Equipment

This trip will be Troop 505’s first “summer” campout of the year. Temperatures are warming up and scouts must prepare for variable weather conditions. Scouts will want to bring the 15 camping essentials listed on the Troop 505 website. Scouts may want to think about the all-important cook wear and ingredients for the 3rd Annual IRON Chef SCOUT cook-off. Lastly, scouts will need their class A uniforms for the Scouts Own on Sunday morning.

Competition

Scouts will want to think about spices and cooking tools they might need for the competition that they might not normally use in camp cooking. A cutting board, spices, extra pots could be useful for the competition. Scouts will not only need to create a “winning meal” for the judges, but this meal will also serve as part Saturday’s dinner.
