“The Kids Campfire Book” by Jane Drake and Ann Love is one outstanding book. This book leads a group leader through every aspect of campfire work from selecting the site, to gathering the wood, building and starting the fire, to games, to songs, to skits, to cooking and food, to sleep bys, to dousing the fire and throughout safety is emphasized. And in every aspect of the campfire, the children are deeply and totally involved.
The writing is clear. The format is clear and entertaining. The illustrations are informative and very helpful.
This is one well done book. And it builds the concept of the campers / children of all ages being involved in the entire process. In this the campfire is much more than an evening's entertainment. The campfire is a camp project, an education in process, an education in building citizens The book is not preachy or religious oriented.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone involved in putting on a campfire, and for anyone involved in children's activities.
I used to build the fire as a kid so that I know, but if you don't, lots-tons of information on that. Also camp songs we used to sing-along with guitar chords, but it also suggest playing any portable instrument. Ghost stories given as well as camp fire games along with some help on recognizing the sky at night, different types of trees and which animals may be watching you in the dark.
Got desserts fixed up for you in the book too.
This would be a fun book for camping in the house and/or in the backyard too- before braving the wilderness or campground with your young kids. You can choose different activities to try out first.
Interesting that even little kids think that the camping in this book is the real camping and not sitting in your cabin watching videos-which a little kid told me happened to him after being taken to the cabin for his first camping trip. "Where's the fire outside and the singing around it?" he asked. "That's camping." I agreed with him. Poor kid.
This book will help you provide that experience.
