Patrols will plan meals (at troop meetings prior to the outing) for two breakfasts and one dinner. Patrols will shop for food prior to the campout and take coolers and dirty cooking gear home for cleanup afterward.

Scouts will be given money on Saturday to purchase their lunch from the available food trucks.
