Why I‟m a Volunteer ► I‟m a Girl Scout volunteer because… I love my daughter I still have a lot to learn I need guidance of the girls who have no father figure I'm a good listener of their reaction when they learn something new of my reaction when they learn something new girls have no limits in life girls have questions girls have unlimited opportunities I don't want my girls to depend on a man I make the time I'm proud of their accomplishments I love to give pats on the back they are worth every minute of my time I don't have all of the answers I'm man enough to be a Girl Scout Day Camp Kitchen Information Nutrition ► Children are very active at camp and need enough calories to get them through the day ► Limit empty calories, and offer all of the recommended food groups ► Pay attention to serving sizes, and be sure to offer the recommended serving sizes (e.g., if the package recommends 5 chicken nuggets per person, do not limit girls to 3) Nutrition ► Ensure water is available at all times ► Vegetarian choices should also offer proteins and high-quality calories from all the food groups There are multiple types of “vegetarians” out there. Some are content with fish sticks. Others only eat eggs or cheese. Pure “vegans” eat neither fish, nor animal products Try to accommodate vegetarian choices within your menu for everyone else (i.e. taco day offer refried beans to everyone, these can replace taco meat) Cooking from Scratch ► Saves money (pre-packaged food costs more) Some pre-packaged food is advantageous (e.g. instant mashed potatoes & pre-cut fries) ► Grilled food has a better taste Bring your own grill & charcoal Prepare grill in plenty of time to cook the food ► Easy to cook 3 ½ boxes of cake mix to one sheet cake pan ► Industrial mixer available in kitchen Cooking from Scratch ► May be slightly more labor intensive Preparing chicken legs to be baked compared to chicken strips that just need to be poured out on a pan What are the Laws? ► Kentucky Administrative Regulation 902 KAR 10:140 identifies Day Camps as subject to state regulation Section 5 (2) states: “All camp food preparation and service facilities shall comply with the provisions of KRS 219.011 to 219.081 and 219.991 and the State Food Service Code.

A designated area shall be established for temporarily holding returned and damaged food items awaiting disposition. The area shall be marked or identified as, „Not for sale or consumption‟.” State Food Service Code ► Section 5: Food Protection (4) has to do with catastrophic events (such as power outage) that prevents storage of food at required temperatures.
