On trip, Expedition participants prepare their own meals. Every trip is sent with a spice kit to add some fun flavor and creativity to meals. Cooking outdoors is an exciting experience and seems to always make the food taste especially good. It is tradition in our expedition programs to hold a chow circle prior to eating a meal - this is when the group forms a circle, crosses their arms and holds each others' hands, and gives thanks to the chefs and food. When the chow circle has reached its close, someone says, "Peace and chow" and everyone responds, "chow and peace" and turns out of the circle.
