MakingFriend Patch Program®This 2″ iron-on embroidered patch is part of our patch program®.


The most challenging part of camping with a group of kids is figuring out what to cook. Picky eaters, dietary restrictions and allergies can make it almost impossible to plan meals. We’ve put together recipes that are kid-friendly and can be easily customized for individual needs.

Here are some recipes that are easy and can be prepped ahead of time. Many of these dishes use the same items to make them more cost effective and allow the kids to choose their own ingredients. It has been shown that children who help meal decisions and participate in the preperation are more likely to try new foods and make healthier choices.

Whenever possible, such as with tin foil meals, lay out all options and allow children to go down the line and make selection of protein, carbs and and vegetables.
