I did my Boy Scouts Webelos thing in Bangkok when I was a kid...we camped out in an expat den mum's yard with tents and campfires and s'mores and all that, and then the frigging monsoon hit at about 2 a.m. and we were afloat with craploads of swimming poisonous snakes by 3:00.

If you have a cast-iron crockpot you can eat well for several days. Our favorite recipe is camp cobbler - take the pot, throw a can of fruit in there (pineapple or apples works well), dump in a box of yellow cake mix, then cover it with a stick of butter sliced into pats. Throw the whole thing on a fire for about 45 minutes (covered) and mix. It's wonderful.
