Cook on a camp fire

‘Cooking on a camp fire is an essential survival skill everyone should learn and is a cool thing to end a wild adventure in the woods with.’ - Recommended by Matthew, aged 11

We couldn’t agree more. Cooking on a camp fire can be great fun. Our Kid’s Councillor, Kit, is quite the expert and shows you how to cook outdoors, with sticks as fuel, in his video.
Top tip: you can cook anything from toasted marshmallows, to fried bacon and eggs, but please make sure you follow these safety guidelines (pdf).


We run events throughout the year where you can learn to cook on a camp fire. Just check at your local National Trust place.
