Off to camp

Bob and the boys spent a weekend with the Boys Scouts on a canoe camp out. The boys were both aiming to complete cooking requirements for rank advancement. The week prior to camp, Lukas and Noah poured over recipes and websites looking for creative ways to cook camp food, as neither was satisfied with the standard camp meals. Friday morning, they shopped from their list, comparing prices, weighing the alternatives and making sure they did not break the budget. Prior to departure, they checked their lists, packed the items and loaded the car, in preparation of Bob arriving home and doing a quick turn around.
This experience helped the boys realize cost of food, how complicated it can be to compare prices and how long it takes to do a good shopping - great life lessons!
