outdoor campfire cooking but sleeping in a cabin in Advancement Resources Posted February 26, 2019 We are digressing. The scouts will pick their own menus. Back to my main question. Opinionated opinions please: 11 hours ago, Treflienne said: Cooking will be done outdoors over campfires. The scouts will plan and cook their meals. However, since they will not be sleeping in tents that they pitched themselves, this is not actually a campout. Since this is not a campout, then the meal planning and preparation and cleanup do not count for rank advancement. Is this interpretation correct?
