Summer camp inspires tasty treats, simple snacks

From outdoor adventures to lifelong friendships, summer camp offers unique experiences that hold a special place in the hearts of those who go. Whether day camp or away camp, these places teach children how to be creative, inventive, and active through sports, team building, education, and the arts, all in one location.

When your child comes home from summer camp dirty, exhausted, and happy, you know that you’ve picked a good one. Welcome and refuel him with a healthy, camp inspired treat like BBQ Seasoned Popcorn. Popcorn is a wholesome whole grain that adds fiber and energy producing carbohydrates to the diet and tastes good, too!

1 tablespoon brown sugar


1 tablespoon paprika


1 teaspoon dry mustard


1 teaspoon salt


1 teaspoon chili powder


 1 teaspoon garlic powder 


1 teaspoon onion powder 


1 teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon celery salt 


¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions: Mix all seasoning ingredients together in a small bowl. Store seasoning mixture in an airtight container. To use: Spray cooked popcorn with cooking spray. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of seasoning mix for each quart of popcorn and stir or shake.
