    Boy Scouts have been cooking for themselves for a hundred years plus. It all starts with training and supervision. They learn skills to last a lifetime. What better way for a boy to learn outdoor skills, have him join scouting.

    We do a variation of the Hobo Stew but we call it Hobo Pie. It’s the best!

    Been making foil packs on the fire since my kids were 1 camping and now going on 10 years they are loving to cook in the house now as well. Camping this weekend and daughter planning the meals which makes it great.

    We recently purchased an older RV and are just finishing up doing a complete renovation. We can’t wait to get out and do some camping (for the first time with our son) and these recipes will be great for us to make together as a family! Thanks for sharing!

    I like the trail mix idea. We are planning a camping trip next week, so this helps.

    A double cheeseburger will show its greatest impact in that
    3-4 hour time frame because proteins and fats start to peak into glucose 3-4 hours post

    Cooking is good way to have kids be involved while camping which helps keep them interested in whst is going on.

    As a Scout leader Hobo burritos have been a hit and it gives the young ones a chance be creative and to cook without the kitchen cleanup!! Great ideas!!

    I love the chili/chips recipe. Will definitely do this camping or maybe tonight at home. We camp A LOT and it seems we are always fixing the same things over and over again. Will be reading more. Thank you.

    Hobo Stew is a standard for camping meals in our family. But I never knew they were called that until now! This is an awesome “First Night” dinner because we prepare everything at home and they are so easy to cook – something we’re not always in the mood to do if it has been a long day of travel and setting up camp.

    one of my favorite things to eat when i go camping is the “dinner in a bag” . It is so easy and sometimes it just hits the spot 😀

    I am going to try one of these recipes when we go camping with the kids in a couple of weeks.

    “Dinner in a Bag” a.k.a. “Frito Pie”, one of my favorites. The trail mix is something my little boy would love to do.

    These are all awesome ideas, and cuts out the need for prepackaged goods..woohoo!

    I can’t wait to try some of these with our daughter as she gets bigger! 🙂

    Great recipes. I have done a variation of the meal in qa bag with Cub Scouts and called it Astronaut nachos. Good meal, or use a small bag for a bed time snack. Warm protein rich snack means warm kids at bedtime, and a better sleep than they’ll get after loading up on s’mores.

    Looking forward to trying these with my kids and our scouting families.

    Even better than adding liquid is to use cabbage (or banana) leaves to put on the bottom, pile in veggies then meat. Juices from meat drip down to steam and flavor veg.
