My younger son is in the BSA and we do plenty of camping trips as the weather cools down. Every camp is a classroom for more than just Merit badges and advancement, but for diverse life skills too. This trip was centered on a 5 mile hike and ID'ing at least 10 flora including at least two poisonous plants, and 10 forms of fauna by sight, sound, spoor or feces. Along with that I've been recruited to teach Dutch Oven campfire cooking. A very useful skill to have. Today I started with giving them a lesson on how many coals, coal placement for cooking methods and a delicious recipe which was devoured for breakfast.

Atop that add the eggs and then the cheese. Finally top with biscuits, you can easily fit 12, 14 if tightly packed.
