SABATTUS – More than 225 Boy Scouts and leaders from 16 troops converged on Camp Gustin for Abnaki District’s Spring King of the Kitchen Camporee on May 14 through 16.

The camporee, hosted by Troop 116 of Lewiston and chaired by Bob Reed, provided Scouts with several culinary competitions, including a flap jack flip-off, fire-starting and egg-boiling relay, cooking trivia and competitions that focused on making the best meals and deserts while outdoors.

In the overall competition the Eagle Patrol from Troop 110 of Sabattus took first place, “The Patrol” from Troop 137 of Auburn took second and the Road Runner Patrol from Troop 565 of Bethel, third.

In the featured event, the Scoutmaster Bake-Off, some Webelos and their parents from Pack 160 were brought in to be guest judges. Scoutmaster Luc Caron of Troop 160 in Lewiston got the most votes with his chicken nuggets and French fries.
