campfire cooking workshop for kids in north wales

Kids can join us for a day in the woods learning to cook up delicious meals and snacks over a crackling campfire. Children will gain confidence in cooking up a variety of foods outdoors from wild teas, to fresh bread, to scrummy desserts. This day is perfect for any child who loves the outdoor life and they’ll pick up a whole bunch of skills to use on their next family camping trip. Expect sticky fingers 🙂

Kids will also build their own campfires and create their own camp cooking gadgets from natural materials to grill, fry, bake and boil a range of tasty treats. All this will take place in our bushcraft basecamp within the grounds of the Hawarden Estate against the backdrop of the woodlands, orchards and fields.

Advance booking is essential – these events are always REALLY popular. Tickets are £40 per child.

♦ Take a foraging walk on the hunt for edible plants

♦ Baking scrummy puddings in a dutch oven

♦ Build your own campfire and cook on it

♦ Craft your own campfire gadgets to hang your cooking pot

♦ Learn to cook up quick & easy alternatives to toasting marshmallows

campfire cooking for kids workshop in north wales

Parents don’t usually stay with their children during this event – but there’s plenty to see at Hawarden Estate Farm Shop if you want to make a day of it. Our Forest School activity days are all supervised by trained and experienced staff… that’s us. If your child has special needs that you feel would require a parent or guardian to stay with them for the day though, we would advise getting in touch with us in advance of making a booking and we’ll see what we can arrange. We like to be as inclusive as we can.
