A few of our amazing selection of cooking kits and items available for 25% off Saturday April 30th  2016.

About 37 years ago our first “calling” as a newly married couple was joint 11-year old leaders. Back then they called it “Blazer Scout Patrol”.

We have been married nearly 37 years and 32 of those years my sweetheart,  Bruce has been serving Scouts. Everything from COR, Venturing, Varsity, (he currently is Scoutmaster again his 4th time around) and unit commissioner, and down to Webelos.

I should have known then if our married life started out in Scouting, that’s where he would be most of our marriage even though we have five daughter’s and one son.

Thirty-five years ago assisting my Scoutmaster husband in getting ready for camp we did not have the cooking gear available we have today. Though we do have the basic mess kit which hasn’t changed much, only improved with a Sporkmesh bag that comes with it.  A basic item every scout needs to have.  Now we have “Sporks” to use as our one and only utensil to take along with it.

As one of the pilot Varsity Scout Coaches he had the opportunity to have a on hands experience working with the 14–15 year old boys. Back then as it is today “the outing” part of Scouting is what he and they (“his boys”) remember best. Hiking to the top of our Orem Cascade Mountain was a memorable challenge to participate in the first  “Operation on Target” Varsity Scout annual event.

Jet-Boil-Flash-Cooking-SystemThe cooking gear has evolved today to very high tech  products making cooking at camp fast easy and fun! He wished he had then the Flash Jet Boil I’m holding (above), I gave him for Christmas this year to pack to the top of the Cascade mountain.

A “Jetboil’ Flash is a personal cooking system with a drink spout in the lid,  neoprene insulated, color changing heat indicator, patented flux Ring, advanced igniter, with a built in tripod. If you have wanted one of these, Sat. April 30th will be the one day to come in and get yours for 25% off. It sure makes a easy quick meal after a long day of hiking, camping, fishing etc. Hot Cocoa (or Ramen noodles, instant oatmeal, etc, ) heats up real quick and you can drink out of the same container you heat it in, making less stuff to pack.

You don’t want to miss this once a year, one day only sale at the Orem Scout Shop with over 500 items 25% off to help you get ready for this year’s outdoor camp outs and activities!
