2001 Manitoga Spring Cookout
News -- Event canceled
The Manitoga district has canceled the entire event. It is a muddy
Clear Lake Scout Reservation, North
Shore Rd., Putnam Valley.
We will be camping along the roadside campsites 31-37 so you will be
able to bring Dutch ovens and cook stoves. See Map.
What to Bring
Scouts should read the cooking section in the Boy Scout Handbook, pages
247-283 before going.
The patrol leaders are responsible for organizing the patrol so that
they will decide on the menus, purchase of food and beverages, and the
supplies (aluminum foil, garbage bags, etc.), and then purchase and bring
these items for Saturday lunch and supper and for Sunday breakfast.
Bring a hot cup, mess kit, sleeping bag, overnight gear, fire starter
such as steel wool, dryer lint for tinder, and a spoon, knife, and fork.
