Deer Crossing Summer Camp

Camp has been going great for the post 10 days. I've been feeding 15 staff for the training session. After a day off on Saturday (to go home and get my wife!), I'll start feeding about 40 staff and campers.

I've been working on the menu and would like to make more items from scratch as many are made from cans and baking mixes. Even when I can't make a scratch dish, I've improvised and improved the boxed mix. Tonight I was able to turn a yellow cake mix into spice cake and cook a caramel fudge icing from scratch.

More to come ...


  1. How is attendance this year? My buddy at a Scout Camp in Southern California says Summer Camp reservations are down about 60% this year. Looks like we need some camp stimulus... Ed

  2. From what I've seen, attendance this year is normal.
