Meal Plan Overview

   Who: Everyone in the Pack Family
  What: Pack 553 may provide a camp kitchen, stoves and food
 When: When we camp
Where: Camp
   WhyThere are many reasons, but here are just a few.  
  • It creates a sense of community within the pack.  
  • We do not want a lack of camping experience, gear or preparation time to be a deterrent to camping.  
  • It allows Scouts to work on their rank-based cooking requirements.  
  • It builds self-confidence in the Scouts and pride when their parents enjoy the fruits of their labor.
The basic premise is simple.  We try to eliminate barriers to camping and enable the Scouts to complete their cooking-related achievements in a fun, safe and friendly environment.   We do this by having a Scout-friendly menu that they are able to cook and enjoy, but still provides a healthy meal for their growing bodies.     

What we Provide
  • Camp Kitchen(s)
    • Stove
    • Utensils
    • Cookware
    • Tables
    • Cleaning Station
    • Canopies
    • Coolers
  • We purchase all the food, Ice and Propane
We do this at actual cost or a little less.  Typically, we are able to provide 5 meals at camp for around $15.00 per person.

What you Provide:
  • Your time and experience.  Help a Scout by taking a shift and mentoring him. 
  • Your own mess kit (reusable plate, bowl, utensils).
  • Your own snacks and drinks.
  • Approximately $15 per person.
  • Your own tent, sleeping bag, and personal hygiene items.
