Cooking in the Wilds

Backcountry Meals


Backpackers stove

Ever since humans figured out how to make fire, they’ve been cooking food over a campfire. Nothing seems to make food taste better than cooking and enjoying a meal outdoors. This program prepares
you for the wilds as you learn what meals are great for the backcountry. You’ll be introduced to meals
that can be cooked on a backpackers stove as well as some great non-cook meals.

Registration is required.
Cookouts will be held weather permitting.
