About the Cookbook

We are thrilled to present a culinary treasure that celebrates 55 years of Camp Neringa’s rich history and traditions.
The Skanaus! cookbook is a unique collection that brings together dozens of recipes that were cooked at Camp Neringa over the years. This cookbook is a testament to the memories, traditions, and friendships that have flourished within Neringa’s welcoming embrace. This book is a representation of our lives at Neringa, where everybody pitches in a helps to get the job done. Please take time to notice the pictures, and see our whole community: young and old, cooking together.

This unique Neringa cookbook includes recipes from all aspects of Neringa. Many recipes come from the successful Lithuanian Culinary Heritage weekends held at Neringa in 2017 and 2022. Other recipes come from people who have worked in Neringa’s kitchen for various events, including the Lithuanian speaking sessions, the Heritage sessions, Family camps, Women’s Weekend, Iškyla/Walkathon, Talka, Mushroom and Nature weekend, and Meno8Dienos. These recipes will live on, and will be used for classes at all camp sessions, for years to come.

Skanaus! is printed in both Lithuanian and English languages, using a unique reversible printing method. The copies meet in the middle for a series of notes pages.

There are also some golden oldies from beloved cooks from the early days of Neringa. We hope you enjoy this collection of Neringa’s culinary history!
