Cooking Outing

The troop went on a cooking outing at Camp Pellissippi on March 1-3. We met at Kern at 5:30PM on Friday to load the troop gear and we got to Camp Pellissippi at around 7:00PM. The purpose of this outing was to provide an opportunity for those scouts who needed to complete cooking/camping requirements to do so. Some of the older scouts participated in Caleb's Eagle project during the day on Saturday and the younger scouts stayed in camp to work on advancements. We were not able to complete any of the observations for the Astronomy merit badge because it was too cloudy. We arrived back at Kern around 10:20 on Sunday morning.

Here we are getting ready for lights out on Friday night. As you can see, the interior of the lodge has new paneling. The next morning it seemed like everyone slept well.

We had a wood stove as well as a fireplace to keep the lodge warm .... and smoky.....

Most of the cooking by the scouts was done out side on the front porch of the lodge. The adult leaders used the gas stove in the lodge.
