Cooking Campout and Philmont Prep Hike - December 4-6, 2015

Posted on Nov 25 2015 - 9:53am

Like to eat?  Like to hike?  Ever wonder what it would be like to combine these two great activities in one campout...wait no longer!  Like peanut butter and chocolate, coconut and almonds, Ben & Jerry...when you combine two ingredients, you often end up with a product that is better than the individual parts.  Cooking and Hiking - who knew that they would go together so well.  Join Troop 838 on the Cooking Campout and Philmont Prep Hike for a fantastic weekend.
