Outdoor Cooking

Outdoor cooking is a team activity!

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.
