Don’t waste time wracking your brain trying to come up with a menu of camp meals for an upcoming weekend camping trip. This weekend camp food menu is complete with easy camp recipes that are as fun to make as they are to eat. It also includes two popular must-have campfire treats that will have your campers smiling with anticipation.

Designed with fun and ease of use in mind, this camp menu can be cooked with as little as just a coffee pot, frying pan, and a pot -plus a campfire of course.

Friday – arrival day dinner

It’s been a long day; packing all the camp gear, the long drive, unpacking everything and setting up camp, and now, everyone wants you to cook dinner. Let them do it themselves.

  • Hobo Tin-foil Hamburger Dinner: 6oz. hamburger patty, sliced onions, sliced carrots, sliced potatoes, a dollop of steak sauce, and salt & pepper to taste.
  • Warmed apple slices
  • Bread and butter
  • Cold beverage and coffee

Campfire treat: S’mores, hot chocolate, and good coffee

Saturday – breakfast

It’s the first full day of camping and everyone is anxious to get started with all the fun things they came camping for. It’s time for a good, but quick and easy breakfast.

  • Instant oatmeal and/or toasted bagels with butter or cream cheese
  • Fruit – an apple or orange
  • Juice – milk – coffee

Saturday – lunch

Everyone is having so much fun -lunch is probably just a forced break because they are hungry. The perfect time for easy-to-fix sandwiches or hoagies.

  • Toasted cold-cut hoagie sandwich: deli meats and cheeses, lettuce-onions-tomatoes, all on a campfire toasted hoagie or Kaiser roll.
  • Pringles (chips), and an apple
  • Cold beverage and coffee

Saturday – dinner

Now everyone is ready for a good, traditional campfire meal. This entree can be cooked in a frying pan, on a campfire cooking grate, or in a tin-foil pack like the Hobo dinner.

  • BBQ boneless chicken breasts: How you plan to cook them determines when and how you use the BBQ sauce
  • Tin-foil baked potato and veggie (corn or peas warmed in their cans, or in the pot)
  • Dinner bread and butter
  • Cold beverage and coffee
  • Campfire treat: Chocolate Banana boat with hot chocolate and good coffee

Sunday – breakfast

Usually an easy day, maybe an activity or two left to do, then get ready to pack-up. Time for a little more leisurely meal -but still easy to prepare and clean-up.

  • Hobo baggie Omelets: Baggies, eggs, cheese, and bacon bits -along with a pot of hot water are all you need for this fun camping breakfast
  • Easy fried hash-brown potatoes from the grocery frozen foods section
  • Juice – milk – coffee

Sunday – lunch

It’s getting to be time to pack-up the camp gear – no time for dawdling or big messes now.

  • Cup-o-Noodles instant noodles: just add hot water to the cup
  • Pringles (chips), and an apple or orange
  • Cold beverage

Weekend snacks

  • Anytime snacks: Trail mix, (Gorp), granola bars, snack-cracker packs, fruit, cookies
  • Evening snacks: Hot chocolate, marshmallows, cookies, bananas, popcorn

And that is your complete weekend camping trip menu. Easy shopping, preparation, and clean-up. Plus, the Hobo meal items are fun to fix, and easy on your budget.
