Hi,
Not a den mother yet....he's only 3. I am looking for a recipe from the boy scouts. My husband was a scout for years and would like the recipe for cobbler that was made in a dutch oven and cooked over a campfire or buried with embers....I cant remember which. If anyone has this please reply. Thanks

Dump Cobbler
1 pkg yellow or white cake mix
2 cans pie filling or 1 lg can fruit ****tail
Cinnamon
Butter


Pour cans of filling or fruit ****tail in bottom of dutch oven. Sprinkle cake mix over top of fruit, DO NOT STIR! Sprinkle with cinnamon and cut pads of butter and let fall on surface. DO NOT STIR, it will burn. Cover and bake until bubbly and top is lightly browned, about 30-45 min. Any combination of fruits can be used. I recommend 1 can apple filling and 1 can of fruit ****tail.




"Mother of Invention" Dutch Oven Cobbler
1 box yellow cake mix
2 boxes Jiffy brand cornbread (or muffin) mix
2 eggs
2 Tbs vegetable oil
Ingredients required by cake mix
Water to make a medium-thick batter
1 can pineapple chunks or crushed pineapple


Combine all 3 boxes of mixes together, mixing well. Add the oil and eggs, and any other ingredients that your particular cake mix calls for. Add water until the resulting batter is fairly thick yet. This doesn't seem to be too critical, except if it is too thick it seems to burn easier. Preheat the Dutch oven slightly and oil up good. Add the batter. Drain the pineapple juice and spread the pineapple out evenly over the top of the batter.


Place the cover on the oven. Use a very small amount of coals on the bottom, about four or five charcoal briquettes worth. Cover the oven top with coals, and bake for about 30 minutes. Replenish the coals on top if needed. Steve Tobin, Scoutmaster




Easy Peach Cobbler
1 Box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix (O/U, parve)
2 29 oz cans sliced peaches (or equivalent)
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Oil (at least 1/3 cup plus 4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Water
Large Ziploc bag to mix cake in


In Ziploc bag, mix cake mix, 3 eggs, 1 and 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup oil.


Preheat oven over 8 burning coals. Add 4 teaspoons oil to pot. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar to pot

When sugar has melted, dump in peaches (with no more than 1/2 cup of the juice), Add 1 cup sugar, Add 2 teaspoons cinnamon . . . and . . .Stir. Pour cake batter on peaches S-L-O-W-L-Y


Put lid on oven and add 12 burning coals on top of lid. After 15 minutes remove oven from coals on bottom and continue baking from top until cake is brown and cake is done (check with toothpick). Allow cake to cool 30 minutes before serving. Bruce Rosen, Scoutmaster Troop 1948, Rockville, MD.




Cherry Crisp
2 cans cherry pie filling
2 sticks butter, melted
1 white cake mix
1-3/4 c chopped nuts


Pour pie filling in bottom of oven. Sprinkle cake mix over top and DO NOT STIR. Top with nuts. Pour melted butter over top. Bake for about 30 min at 350 degrees.

scout recipes

Thank You for posting those great recipes. We'll be sure to try them out this summer.

Are any of you sending your boys to Cub Scout day camp this year ? I would have liked to but in our den, no one else was interested, so my 8yr. old will go to the YMCA camp again.

Thank you for all the great recipes. My husband is looking forward to trying them this summer when he goes camping with the kids. You noticed I didnt mention that I was going along....I am all camped out. My idea of roughing it is a hotel with an outdoor pool rather than an indoor one!

Tiger Cubs!

It's official, we got my ds (age 6) registered for Tiger Cubs last Thursday. This Saturday was their first big pack event (at the local model airplane field). Ds is so excited and can't wait to get his uniform. I can't wait for this scouting experience, I was a GS all through school and a leader in college. Can't wait for my dd to be old enough, and in the meantime I'm Ds's adult partner for Tiger cubs as Dh has to work every Thurs night.
Anyways, just thought I'd stop in and share our excitement. I'm sure I'll be back looking for ideas soon. It's really neat that each month is a different theme. I'm not volunteering to be Den Leader, but I promised to help all I could with events, crafts, etc.

I am a den leader for a very active group of 7 Bears. I really love scouting. My son and I have been involved with our Pack for 2 years now.

We had our first Pack Meeting last night and it was great! My den put on a skit. They did a great job.

We are planning our first camping trip of the year in a couple of weeks. I can't wait. Camping is my favorite scouting activity.

Our Council has a very nice facility for the camp outs. There will be over 175 scouts and partners there the same weekend we are going.

The boys have lots of opportunities at camp to earn belt loops and work on their rank badges.

I will be posting often about scouting. If I can help any new scouters out there, just let me know. Everything I know I learned from someone else!

Hi Kellygirl64 and welcome! I too have a son in Scouting. He went all through Cub Scouts, and 1 1/2 years ago "crossed over" into Boy Scouts. I hope he sticks with it all the way to Eagles.
Thanks for posting and for your offer of help. Feel free to share your ideas in the different threads here in the Scouting forum, or start up some new threads! And welcome to Family Corner!

Lightbulb Help Ideas Needed

I'm officially Den leader for Tiger Cubs . . . Not planned, but there are only a handful of kids in our Den and not a one parent to volunteer.
I'm a bit overwhelmed after reading through the schedule, and the Tiger Cub handbook. I want to do a good job and make sure the earn all of their beads to earn their Tiger Cub patch, how do I make sure that everything works right? Also, I don't have a Den leader handbook yet, so . . . Next meeting I want to make sure the kids and us adults make a rules poster for everyone to sign (we needed one tonight!) and there was some suggestion for some way to recognize their achievements at each Den meeting (can't remember the term). Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Any ideas? Hints? to make everything run smoothly?
I would love all the help I can get.
Carrie Ann

PS My ds is soooo excited to put his uniform on and can't wait to start earning beltloops!!!

Hi basktbug2!

I hope you enjoy the time you will get to spend with your son in scouts. My advise to you is get your training as soon as possible. When you go to basic leader training and leader specific training, things will start to become more clear. Also, if you don't have a program help book, get one at your local scout store. It is a guide that helps you conduct meetings and shows you how to help the boys earn their beads, patches, belt loops, etc.

As far as rules (I'm guessing you mean conduct rules) that is always the biggest issue I have had with the younger groups like Tigers and Wolves. They can be very rowdy and full of energy.

My best advice is to keep them busy at all times. Find things for them to do from beginning to end of your meetings.

I didn't start out being a leader either, but like you no one else would volunteer. Now I love it. I hope you do too!
