  • Dig the hole for the latrine 6-10 inches deep.
  • Each person should cover his waste with dirt.
  • It is best to dig the pit for the latrine in
    dark-colored soil.
  • The sun heats up microorganisms in the dark soil
    and decompose the solid waste more quickly.

13

17
Proper Food Handling Importance of properly
storing food while camping.
  • Properly stored food prevents illness, prevents
    contamination by dirt and pests.
  • Microorganisms multiply rapidly when fresh meats,
    fruits, and vegetables are allowed to warm
    between 70-100 degrees, which can lead to
    illness.

18
Proper Food Handling What can be done to
prevent food spoilage
  • Food Spoils due to the growth of microorganisms
    that cause decay.
  • Conditions such as temperature and moisture
    encourage spoilage
  • Food spoilage can also be caused by the bruising
    of fruits/vegetables, pest infestation, and
    mixing fresh and cooked food (cross-contamination)
    .

19
Proper Food Handling Other ways to prevent
food spoilage
  • Mixing Foods is not a good idea. Meats should
    always be stored by themselves.
  • It is best to separate fruit and vegetables from
    meat because of the danger of food poisoning by
    cross-contamination.
  • When going on an extended camp-out of a week or
    more, meat should be stored in separate cooler
    chests so that they do not have to open the
    cooler chests any more than necessary.

20
Proper Food Handling Other ways to prevent
food spoilage
  • Keep the meat that is going to be used near the
    end of the camp-out separate from the meat that
    will be used at the beginning of the camp-out.
  • The more times a cooler is opened the more
    quickly the ice will melt and the internal
    temperature of the cooler will rise unless the
    water is drained off and more ice is added.
  • When possible buy precooked meat or precook your
    meat before campout
