Outdoor Skills Day

Outdoor Skills Day is a Girl Scout camp training. Regan wasn't too thrilled with it, but I think she had fun at some of the stations. First we made "edible fire" which is the way they teach them how to make a campfire. Start with pretzel logs, make a fire ring out of marshmallows and M&M's, "light" the fire with red hots, etc. Then the best part, you get to eat it all! Then we had fire safety, learned how to wash their new mess kits, how to pack and roll up your sleeping bag, how to start and use a propane stove, and how to set up a tent. And then, we got to put our fire safety to good use and roast hot dogs and make s'mores! This is to prepare them for our big campout next weekend, we will have to cook our own food and everything! And somehow, I got signed up to help with this trip, so yay me!
