Camping Trip

Recommended Posts

I'm going camping in July with my school for something called the Duke of Edinbrugh award and im stuck for ideas for food that will be easy to carry. A lot of the stuff i usually get needs to be cooked in a microwave and/or takes to long. I need quick simple food that will give me energy as well as tasting ok. All we can think of at the moment is tinned spagetti which although its simple and easy isnt a very good thing to be eating all day for two days. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your help.

what sort of facilities are you going to be having at your camp? when I first read the question, I was thinking backpacking (which is what I do), but thought car camping was a possibility. now it seems it might be at an established camp with buildings, and maybe facilities?

what will you have available to you?

All we will get is basic stuff like a tent, stove etc and theres a possiblity we will need to make a fire, but we dont know about that yet (because of health & safety)

The whole point of it is we fend for ourselves, we split into groups and then its up to us to do everything, we will be walking quite a lot as well. I think we are camping in the middle of a wood or a clearing etc. not an established camp with buildings. There will be teachers around but we have to cook for ourselves and things.

I'll get back to you with the sort of stuff I generally take backpacking with me on Monday (long weekend this weekend, and got home late tonight :) )

one thing i'm stocking up on for my summer camping trips are pure fit energy bars. they remind me of power bars. my faves are the chocolate brownie and the peanut butter. they're not candy bars, so don't expect that. don't know where you can get them where you are, i know they have them near me at a couple stores. or you can buy them online - Lame Advertisement or purefit.com. if you go to the pure fit site, they have a store locator that will show you any nearby stores that carry them. but i just checked their site, and i think they only distribute to the US. may have to order online.

another thing you can make and take is a tinfoil dinner. some meat and veggies (i like hamburger, onions, carrots and potatoes), seasoned, and wrapped in several layers of foil. i precook everything before i take it, so all you really have to do is heat it up in a fire. those are pretty easy. when we went camping last summer, we even made our tinfoil dinners into a stew, because we couldn't use a fire. just threw them into a pot, added a little water, and heated them over the stove.

i would make some muffins or "oatmeal" cookies - something tasty but slightly nutritious. i always add lots of nuts and dried fruit to mine to give them more substance.

you could take some jerky, some of those single serving packages of tuna fish w/ some crackers. if you have a stove, you could even freeze some stuff like gluten-free pancakes and eggs (crack a couple eggs, dump them in a ziploc bag and freeze them) to make breakfast.

that's all i can think of for now. thanks for reminding me, i gotta start stocking up on stuff for my camping trip!
