Bushcraft – Fire Lighting

Success – toasting the marshmallows

I was asked by friends at Freax Adventure to provide and run an introductory fire lighting session as part of an on site team bonding day. After a little thought, I opted to set a challenge of toasting marsh mallows which no matter how old you are is always popular.

As part of the challenge, the team needed to:

  • learn to use a fire steel;
  • gather the raw materials to make a fire; and
  • light and tend the fire to toast marshmallows.

This proved to be a very popular activity with all the students toasting quite a few marshmallows.
