Explorer 2011, Ode to Baked Oatmeal

I decided to change it up and dedicate a video segment to camp food. So I began to ask campers what their favorite camp food was. I soon gave up because almost everyone answered baked oatmeal and those who didn’t all said something different that we weren’t having that week which made it impossible to get supportive footage. So I changed my question to “what do you think about baked oatmeal?” After observing absurd excitement over this simple food, I began to question how it all came to be. I figured the best person to explain or at least inform this clip was the cook, Benjamine. Although she didn’t know how it became a camp thing she noted by talking to various people it seemed baked oatmeal is unique to camp and an undeniable favorite. I must say its deliciousness is a bit exaggerated here, but hey this is camp why not go crazy. If you’ve never tried it you’re missing out!

    I only spent one summer as a counselor at BBC, and all the vets were talking about Baked Oatmeal before the first week of campers even arrived. However, I must admit that mornings with baked oatmeal left a hungry Smalls until lunch, definitely not my favorite camp food!
