Labor Day Camping Recipes Menu

Send off the summer right!

Summer, summer, summer – how’d you fly by so fast? Labor Day weekend is next week (already!), so we’re busy making our menu of camping recipes. To make things easy, put together the foil packets before you leave for the campsite, then just throw them on ice and put them in a cooler. That way you just have to toss the foil packets on the campfire.

Not craving any of the recipes below? Be sure to check out our Camp Recipes page for 40+ camping recipes – breakfast, dinner, snacks… and don’t forget about dessert!
