This camp week was dedicated to practicing fire-making in a safe and fun environment. Campers learned how to identify and utilize natural firestarters like lighter pine and cedar bark. We explored different methods for building the starting structure for their fires. Each camper had the opportunity to try out various primitive and modern fire starting methods like a bow drill, steel striker, and ferrocerium rod. Each day brought a new opportunity for participants to develop their fire skills. We even had a chance to cook food over a campfire! Marshmallows, YUM! Check out the photos below to see some of the fun.
