    • I agree with you.  If anything, this can turn the grocery shopping into a patrol activity, rather than an individual one. They can do the price comparisons, etc.   I'd much rather have the boys order the groceries online at a meeting, than have their parents do the shopping.  
    • Sounds to me like you are already doing "Family Scouting" -- just unofficially in a GSUSA context. It also sounds like both the girls and the boy are having a good experience on these trips.   Does this mean that there is hope that some units within BSA might make a good thing out of "Family Scouting"?
    • I hear ya. This might not be for you, but if one considers starting to use the same gear for a backwoods adventure when first starting out near the car it might make the transition much easier as the scouts (more the adults) do not need to relearn how to do "without" a certain item. YMMV.
    • Okay, so mostly we tend to do things differently in the UK, so this wasn't cubs but Explorers, aged 14-17. Our last summer camp was in a farmer's field, for a few nights we had them cooking for themselves, with food we supplied, and a few nights because of timings of activities we had a small group of them cooking for everyone else (i.e. making a meal for 50 people). The couple doing all the food shopping did 90% of it online, not only that, they got it delivered direct to site in the supermarket's lorry, so it was all kept chilled and frozen, and was a lot easier! Delivery location was something like "400 yards past New Farm in a field on the left, Somesuch Lane, Corfe Castle, Dorset. Most of the delivery drivers were happy to drive in and back right up to the stores tent. Winner! So yes, for central catering, what an absolute boon online supermarket shopping is.
