Fire Starting & Camp Cooking Workshop

Join us for a fun and educational fire starting and camp cooking workshop led by experienced campers and backpackers, Eric and Katie!

In the first half of the workshop, Eric will guide participants through various techniques for starting a fire in the wilderness. From traditional methods to modern tools, he’ll demonstrate how to safely and efficiently build a fire in different environments. You’ll have the opportunity to practice starting a fire from a spark. Additionally, Eric will showcase a range of camp cooking options.

Meanwhile, Katie will lead a campfire cooking demonstration and share her expertise on lightweight and nutritious food choices for extended outdoor adventures. She will highlight inventive recipes and techniques for cooking hearty meals outdoors. 

To conclude the workshop, every participant will have the opportunity to enjoy a meal prepared during the session, allowing them to savor the fruits of their labor and connect with fellow outdoor enthusiasts.
