Webelos: Cast Iron Chef
In this adventure, Webelos Scouts will learn about good nutrition, how to safely cook meals in the outdoors, and how to balance meal planning and finances.

- Exploring the pros and cons of various survival techniques
- Introduction to a variety of outdoor skills that will be built on in a Troop
