We’re back with the latest installment in our camp cookie series, but before we get there (which happens to be a cookie fit for breakfast, lunch, or dinner), we’ve got another mini contest that you do not want to miss.

We’ve been sharing our favorite cookie recipes all year long, and now it’s your turn! The Greystone Kitchen is looking for new cookie recipes that will be instant camp classics, and we know you have some good ones to share. You’re invited to enter your favorite cookie recipe in our contest; our winner’s cookie will be served at camp this summer, but that’s not the only prize on the line.

This mini-contest is open to our entire community, but if you’re a current camper and your recipe is picked, you’ll win a Greystone Kitchen t-shirt AND a warm cookie delivery at Call to Quarters for your whole cabin! Talk about a dream prize. Know the cookie you want to submit? Go ahead and enter today - the contest will close on March 30th. We can’t wait to taste-test your favorites!
