Camping Project

Youth will learn what to bring camping and how to meal plan for a large group. Youth will learn dutch oven cooking, campfire cooking, how to set up a tent, and how to build a fire. They will also come up with fun outdoor activities to do over the weekend camping trip.

We will have a planning meeting before trip for youth to meal plan, create a packing list and determine what activities they will do.
