Basic Amounts: Village

Next to having a lot of recipes to choose from, it is also very useful to have basic amounts to calculate with during a camp. In the “Calculate” section you can find the basic amounts per person to calculate how much food you will need at a camp. Next to this we want to give you amounts that are useful to know for the different types of CISV camps, especially to do a quick calculation about what to buy in the beginning of a camp and how much food you will roughly need.
