Girl Scouts can work together to prepare, cook and clean up after themselves when they eat outdoors. Start simple, build confidence, and work toward more advanced cooking skills. Encourage a progression of skills in preparing and cooking meals over a fire.
Generally, anything you cook on a stovetop at home can be cooked over a fire and usually with equivalent cooking time. Try a couple recipes in our Basic Outdoor Cookbook, use your own cooking experience to modify to your taste, or try your own favorite recipes!
Note: Before building campfires or cooking fires, at least one volunteer in a Girl Scout group must complete GSNWGL’s Outdoor Education training. See the Events calendar for upcoming training dates or talk to your service area’s Outdoor Champion.
