Best Camping Recipes And Easy Snacks
My family growing up didn’t go on camping trips. The first time I ever went was with my older brother, who went ALL the time, after we were both married.
He and his wife had all their supplies always packed and ready to go so they could take off at any time. We went in November in Texas, so the weather wasn’t unbearable by any means.
Also, I did catch the biggest fish… hmmm… I wonder if that’s why he’s never invited me again? lol.
Another time we took our Youth Group camping in Tyler, Texas, to Jesus Go Fest (we were Youth Pastors for about 20 years or so). Our youngest was just a toddler in a playpen – but he had a blast. (Keep reading for youth group snack ideas)
The last night we were there, we had stew that we had cooked beforehand and brought with us. This is a stew no one on that trip will ever forget.
As we were preparing the fire to heat up the stew, our oldest son was doing something with the older boys and stepped backward with his size 13 feet … right IN TO the stew…

We had no more food left. We were leaving the next morning…, so everyone, EXCEPT our oldest son, chose to eat it anyway. I think he knew something about his shoes we didn’t… lol.
I can’t think of another time I have gone since then, but we always enjoyed our time when we did.
It’s a good time to get away and relax without all of the distractions of the world that keep us from looking up and talking to each other face to face.
These are some of the times you make the best family memories. You want your kids to have happy memories of times you were all together and just focused on each other for a time.
