Memorial Day Camping Recipes

Memorial Day is a holiday that was created after the Civil War, and grew in popularity after World War I. It is a day to remember all those that have sacrificed their lives in times of war and give thanks for their bravery. This long weekend over the years has also become a popular holiday to spend with family and friends doing activities such as cooking out, boating, or even camping. Camping is a fun-filled activity that a whole family can enjoy doing together. One fun aspect of camping, whether camping in a tent or staying in an RV, is cooking while camping! Here are some tasty camping recipes perfect for Memorial Day and this special weekend spent with the ones you love the most.
