Planning for Winter Camp XLIV At Home

GeneralMatt GrimbleDouglas Wilson


The Council's Covid policies mean that we cannot use any cabins at D-bar-A Scout Ranch this year and we may not be able to get together depending on state restrictions.

Winter Camp At Home focuses on providing a kit that allows those who can't attend the Local or At Camp events to still participate in Winter Camp. It might also mean thsat we can include people from other states.

The kits are complete. I forgot to include postcards, but I'll just deliver them with the kit.

I've acquired most of what we need for the grit kits. Some of it is still in transit.

The At Home kits are a little more in flux I think.

I had kind of thought we'd need 12-15 At Home Kits. I'm nervous as things are getting worse with Covid that we might need more. Anyone have a guess or opinion?

Recorded the video for a bread baking demo. Will require editing and voice over. Had to make two batches as I forgot a couple things, they did both turned out OK. Alan will do the editing likely this weekend.

Another thought about activities. Maybe we could do a boardgame thing. I think if Brian is going to be there people really enjoy Heroquest. I have a few games with themes in Greece, Rome, and Egypt plus some with broader themes like Heroscape, the battle of all times. Normally some of these games can't come to camp due to space but I think I should be able to bring them if we decide we're interested in giving them a shot.

I was giving some thought to a menu for the Local event. We kind of have a couple of masters to serve. I think we want to hit at least some of the classic Winter Camp meals, but of course we ought to have a couple of new things since that's part of Winter Camp. I was thinking something like.

December 28
Lunch: Middle-Eastern in honor of the Egyptian mythos. This would be a new to us kind of thing I think. I have a good resource for recipes and ideas.
Dinner: Caveman (think of it as paleo-Roman)
Snack: Bake and Take Snack. Basically the Bakery Snack plus a loaf to take home for each person.

December 29
Breakfast: Jackpot Grits (easy and traditional)
Lunch: Congomerate? Maybe we send our leftovers to camp and do something else
Dinner: Mexican is usually very popular at camp.
Snack: Bollmano's
