101Camp Cooking TipsMeasure ingredients for each meal ahead of time and pack in ziplock bags. Label each bag accordingly.Prepare soups, stews or chili etc ahead of time. Freeze and keep in cooler. Reheat for a quick meal.Don't forget the heavy duty aluminum foil. There are many uses for it at camp.Be very careful with gas canisters. Keep upright at all times. Keep outside in well ventilated area. Check for leakage by putting soap liquid on all connections. Turn off when not in use.Freeze meat before putting in cooler. Keeps other foods cold and will keep longer.Cover pots whenever cooking outdoor. Food will get done quicker and you will save on fuel. Also helps keep dirt and insects out of your food.For ease of clean up and to protect from smoke and fire damage, put liquid soap on outside of your pots and pans before putting over the fire.Block ice will last longer than cubed ice.All items in your cooler should be packed in watertight bags or containers.To avoid unwanted visits from animals, keep food stored away or hang above ground level.Apply oil on camp grill to keep foods from sticking.Fill gallon milk jugs or 2 liter soda bottles with water or juice and freeze. They keep the cooler cold and provide a cold beverage.Cans of frozen juice keep other foods cold.Use ziplock bags to store foods like soup, sauces, chili etc. Freeze the bag and put in cooler. It helps keep other foods cold.Use fireproof cooking equipment. Keep handles away from extreme heat and flames.To keep matches dry--dip stick matches in wax and when needed, scrape off the tip of the match and light. Also keep matches in a waterproof container.To fix a cooler leak, apply melted paraffin wax inside and outside the leaky area.Put a pan of hot water on the fire while you eat so that it'll be ready for cleanup when you are done.To keep soap clean at your campsite, put it in a sock and hang from a tree.Pita bread packs better and stays in better shape while camping than regular type breads.Bring energy boosting snacks such as GORP (Good Old/Oats Raisins and Peanuts) trail mix, granola bars, dried fruit, beef jerky etc. for in between meals.To cook hamburgers more evenly throughout, put a hole in the middle of your hamburger about the size of your finger, during grilling the hole will disappear but the center will be cooked the same as the edges.To remove odors from your cooler, wipe with a water and baking soda solution.Use a separate cooler for drinks so not to open the food cooler too often.Replenish your ice often. Keep your food cold at all times to avoid food spoilage and food poisoning.
102To keep marshmallows from sticking together, add a little powdered sugar to the bag. Brand name marshmallows are less likely to stick together.When making egg sandwiches using English muffins or bagels, cook your eggs in a canning ring.Consider using a crockpot. Prepare and start your dinner in the morning before your activities. It'll be ready to eat when you get back.If you add too much salt to a recipe, add a peeled potato to the dish and finish cooking. The potato will absorb the excess salt.On your last day of camp, use your leftover meats and vegetables to make omelets for breakfast. You can use almost any ingredient in omelets. Then you don't have to take the leftovers home with you.Pre-chop ingredients such as onion, peppers etc at home. Pack in ziplock bags.Pre-cook select meats and freeze for quick meal preparation.Pack food items in separate ziplock bags. Saves space. Easy to pack. Resealable. Can use for trash container when empty.Instead of "stick" or "tub" butter or margarine, try "squeeze" margarine. This squeeze bottle is much easier and cleaner to use when in the woods. It is also great for cooler temperature. If it gets too hard, simply place the bottle in a pot of warm water for a few minutes.Cook on or over coals (either wood or charcoal). Coals provide a more steady, even heat without the smoke.To save room when packing your camp kitchen, use your pots as mixing bowls.Heavy duty aluminum foil bags take up little room and are great for mixing vegetables and meats together for easy cooking and easy clean-up.To get your charcoal pieces ready quicker, use a charcoal chimney.Disposable water bottles make great dispensers for salad dressings, oils and sauces.Add a few ice cubes to aluminum foil dinners or vegetables packets to prevent them from burning and to keep them moist.Easily remove burnt on food from your skillet or pan by simply adding a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan; bring to a boil.Use an old large coffee pot to heat up water for cooking, doing the dishes or for hot beverages.Use a leather/suede work glove as an oven mitt.Make and bring home-made Fire Starters.If you are truly into outdoor camping, invest in one of those airtight bag/sealing systems. Without air, bacteria doesn't grow (as fast) and cold foods seem to keep better. Prepare individual servings in airtight bags so you only open what you need. For frozen items, individual servings defrost faster than large portions. Since the bags are reuseable, use them for your litter. They are also lighter than cans. Finally, the bags are thicker than other storage bags and will help cut down, if not eliminate, food odors.Use two or four large coffee cans filled with water and covered with heavy duty aluminum foil as grill holders. As your meals cook, water heats up for dishes or cleanup. Store in their own plastic bags to keep soot from other items. Fold plastic bags inside for storage along with roll of T.P. and other small camping items such as dishcloth, soap etc.

104CeremoniesColorsMaterials needed for each person involved with the ceremony:1 Strip of leather about 7 inches long1 pony bead of each color: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, VioletPlace a bead of each color on the leather as this story is read aloud:Once upon a time the colors of the world started a quarrel, all claimed that they were the best, the most important, the most useful, the favorite.RED shouted out: "I am the ruler of all of you -- I am blood -- life's blood! I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy.“ORANGE started next to blow her trumpet: "I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangos, and pawpaws. I don't hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you."YELLOW chuckled: "You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."GREEN said: "Clearly, I am the most important. I am the sign of life and hope. I was chosen for grass, trees, leaves - without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority."BLUE interrupted: "You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, all of you would be nothing."INDIGO spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination: "Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me, all of you become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace."VIOLET rose to her full height. She was very tall and spoke with great pomp: "I am the color of loyalty and power. Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me - they listen and obey.“And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly, there was a startling flash of bright lightning...thunder rolled and boomed. Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colors crouched down in fear, drawing closer to one another for comfort. In the midst of the clamor, rain began to speak: "You foolish colors, fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Don't you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different? Join hands with one another and come to me." Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands. The rain continued: "From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace. The rainbow is a sign of friendship and hope for tomorrow." And so, whenever the rain washes the world, look up... and as the rainbow appears in the sky, let us all remember our friendships new and old... and that tomorrow is always a new day."
105Ashes FOUR SPIRITS OPENING: Obtain silence with a raised hand. Each entered from the appropriate compass point and said their reading.North: I am the spirit of the North where the great game of Guiding began.South: I am the spirit of the South and I spread the love of Scouting & Guiding to the world.East : I am the spirit of the East and I spread the friendship of Scouting & Guiding to the world.West: I am the spirit of the West and I spread the worth of Guiding & Scouting to the world.All: Together we join in the fire of friendship.ASHES CEREMONY:Ashes taken from a campfire are sprinkled into the flames of the next campfire. The next morning, when the ashes are cold, they are stirred and each Scout takes some along to mix with her next campfire."We carry our friendship with us in these ashes from campfires with other comrades in other lands. May the joining of the dead fires with the leaping flames symbolize once more the unbroken chain that binds Scouts and Guides around the world. With greetings from Scouts of the United States, Guiders from Canada, England, and New Zealand, and everywhere."If more than one Scout brings ashes to the same campfire, the lists are pooled, with the dates and places of all campfires recorded and passed on. It is traditional that only those present at the ceremony carry away ashes from that ceremony."Each of you present here will receive a portion of these campfire ashes to keep the chain of sisterhood continuing forever. We hope you will carry these ashes further on the journey around the world, and share them again and again."
106Cooking MethodsCamp cooking can be experienced in many different ways. You can make it quick and simple or you can plan it as one of your activities for the day. Many enjoy the process of camp meal preparation and experiment with various methods. But the one thing everyone agrees with, is that food cooked at camp taste good. Below is an outline of some of the various cooking methods used in the outdoors.Camp StovesPropane or white gas (2) burner stoves - most commonly usedButane (1) burner backpack stoves - very lightweightKerosene stoves - efficient and inexpensive fuelCAUTION: Only operate a camp stove in open, well ventilated areas.CharcoalUsed in BBQ grill or fire ringProvides consistent heat distributionUse a fire starter to start charcoal or to reduce heating time use a charcoal tower or large can with both ends removed and holes punched around the bottom. Crumble paper in bottom and place charcoal on top. Tilt can slightly and light paper with a match. Using pot holders, remove can when coals are ready and spread out for larger cooking surface.One piece of charcoal equals 40 degrees of temperatureCharcoal will be gray-white in daylight and red at night when ready for useWood FiresReflects true camp atmosphere - warmth, romance, simplicity, gathering placeProvides practical & versatile cooking opportunitiesFor successful cooking, have the right kind of fire for the type of cooking you plan on doing. Example -- for boiling use a quick flame, for stewing use a low flame, for frying or broiling use a bed of glowing coalsDutch OvenUse with charcoalPlace three times as many charcoal pieces on the lid as under the ovenAlways cook with lid onMust be seasoned with oil before useCover outside of oven with foil for easy clean-upTin Can CookingUse large tin canLayer your meal - meat on bottom, vegetables, seasonings etc.Cover with foil and cook over fireRemove can with pot holders and serve
