Pizza at Camp FTW!
An one night camp of 6 adults and 12 youth in the middle of October in lovely Vancouver, British Columbia. It was a linking camp for Colony and Pack.
If I were to tell you our grocery bill total was only $121.56, would you believe me? Well, it’s true. What’s even better is that everything was warm and pretty healthy all things considered. That works out to be about $6.76 per person for 4 snacks (includes mug-up), 1 lunch, 1 dinner and 1 breakfast. I can’t even do that well for 2 people!
The campers arrived at camp for 8:30am on Saturday (was an hour away from where we meet). After getting settled into camp, doing a quick exploration of the area and prepped for our activity it was time for something to eat.
First up: snacks. Kept it pretty simple with Bananas and Oranges.
Break into program.
We were at the Fort Langley Historic site, so it was self guided, had lots of options for the youth to keep entertained and easy on the leadership as we just had to keep the group together and respectful. Left lots of time for the Scouters to prepare meals. For lunch we were going to let the youth cook up some hot dogs and have carrots (for some reason this group of youth simply love having carrots with their hot dogs).
As we went through program it was once again time to snack. This time, it was the delicious s’more granola bars with a side of the crowd favourite pink lemonade.
For dinner, that’s where we got fancy. Individual pizzas. I simply love this option for dinner at camp. Why? Everyone gets what they want and can’t complain. Have a variety of meat, a small section of veggies, enough cheese to feed a small army and naan. It’s hard to go wrong.
It’s not always easy to keep the budget in check, but sometimes it’s nice to not have spaghetti at camp.
