I just returned from camping with my nephew (30's) and his two boys (6 & 8). We went to a recreational camping/fishing area run by the La. State Dept of Agriculture and Forestry just South of Alexandria, La (Indian Creek Recreational Area).

I executed the following menu:
CAMPING MENU

FRIDAY
SUPPER
Hotdogs
Hotdog buns
Mayo, mustard, ketchup, salt, pepper
Chili
Potato chips

SATURDAY
BREAKFAST
Scrambled eggs
Biscuits
Bacon

LUNCH
Vienna sausages
Ritz crackers
Cheese

SUPPER
Hamburger & beans
Rice
Smores

SUNDAY
BREAKFAST
Scrambled eggs
Biscuits
Bacon
Grits or oatmeal

LUNCH
Lunchables

MISCELLANEOUS
Case of water
Cokes
Mountain Dew
Coffee
Milk
Ziplock bags (qt & gal)
Garbage bags
Firewood
Ice
Plastic wear
Paper plates
Paper towel

With my usual talent, I managed to burn the biscuits each morning. I did much better this morning though by using charcoal briquets to cook breakfast. The briquets were much better that using firewood type coals on the lid of the dutch oven.

Thank you Bacpacjac for your "camping in" video. Because of that video, I did remember to get whistles for my great nephews to wear during the day. I also had them bring a stuffed animal with them. I started their building of a camping kit by providing them with Lexan cups, bowls, Spoons, Forks, and a Bota bag for each.

The younguns are well disciplined/behaved lads who spent most of an afternoon digging for buried treasure after I broke out an entrenching tool for them to practice/play with. This search ended up as a geocaching experience for them both.

Overall, the adults had a relaxing time and the boys have been introduced to camping.

Awesome to hear about the good experiences all around!

If you want to eyeball a few videos on Youtube about camp cooking, Dave Canterbury's got some awesome recipes. The Mountain Man Style Breakfast and the Hobo Stew are both great camp foods.



Now that you've got the great nephews broken in to camping, maybe a weekend canoe trip to do some fishing or squirrel hunting later on this year might be on call, eh? :D

Great stuff, wildman! Camping with kids is so much fun. No doubt you made awesome memories. Hopefully you've started them on a lifelong journey. Can't wait to hear about your net adventure. Thanks for sharing!!
