The six week course is designed to teach young people about cooking and nutrition through the means of outdoor campfire cooking. Students will learn fire making skills as well as food preparation and a variety of cooking techniques. The course is particularly aimed at engaging young people who would find cookery less appealing or harder to engage with in a traditionalclassroom environment. The emphasis is on cooking and eating together and through doing so it presents an opportunity to grow in self confidence and practice teamwork in a very hands on way.
