Scouts will learn from experienced cooking instructors a vital skill of adulthood; feeding themselves.

Using our training kitchen and the patrol method, Scouts will not only learn how to plan meals for camping trips, but how to plan and execute meals for themselves, and their families.

Please note the following:

  • This is NOT an overnight event. It's held during the day over 2 days.
  • Lunch is included.
  • Please bring paper and pencil
  • Please bring a signed BSA Health Form at check in
  • Scout must attend both days to receive credit

The following are out of class homework requirements. After finishing the homework for this class, turn in to CAPhomework@gmail.com.

  • Requirement 4

Cooking at home. Using the MyPlate food guide or the current USDA nutrition model, plan menus for three full days of meals (three breakfasts, three lunches, and three dinners) plus one dessert. Your menus should include enough to feed yourself and at least one adult, keeping in mind any special needs (such as food allergies) and how you keep your foods safe and free from cross-contamination. List the equipment and utensils needed to prepare and serve these meals. Then do the following:

  1. Create a shopping list for your meals showing the amount of food needed to prepare and serve each meal, and the cost for each meal.
  2. Share and discuss your meal plan and shopping list with your counselor.
  3. Using at least five of the 10 cooking methods from requirement 3, prepare and serve yourself and at least one adult (parent, family member, guardian, or other responsible adult) one breakfast, one lunch, one dinner, and one dessert from the meals you planned.*
  4. Time your cooking to have each meal ready to serve at the proper time. Have an adult verify the preparation of the meal to your counselor.
  5. After each meal, ask a person you served to evaluate the meal on presentation and taste, then evaluate your own meal. Discuss what you learned with your counselor, including any adjustments that could have improved or enhanced your meals. Tell how planning and preparation help ensure a successful meal.

This class will be held at Colorado Adventure Point. Colorado Adventure Point is located on the west side of Hamilton Scout Headquarters.
