Quartermaster’s tent

The Quartermaster and their team are responsible for making sure all the Explorer Scouts and Leaders at Blair have the ingredients they need keep themselves well fed and full of energy for camp. That means they do all the shopping and they plan the menus for the Explorers, the Subcamp teams and for the Staff Mess, where most of the Leaders eat.

In this tent you’ll find menus, ingredients and recipes from camp to help you recreate the Blair Atholl experience at home. Why not try cooking something over an open fire or barbecue, if you can do so safely!
