5.0 out of 5 stars Cooking in a can
As a Scout leader you are always looking for new Ideas to share with young people. This book does just that, it is fun and educational. The layout of the book and diagrams are very young person friendly. My only problem is that my Group Scout Leader has pinched my copy for the Cubs so I going to have to order another.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good starter
A good place to start - quite a few recipes, and some good ideas for fire starters, but not for the hardcore or more adventurous. If you already work with kids outside there won't be much in here that is new to you, but if you don't and are thinking about starting (and you really should) then this is a good place to start. Its not full of frightening challenges,...

4.0 out of 5 stars some brilliant ideas, 15 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cooking in a Can (Activities for Kids) (Paperback)
because it is an American book some of the ingredients, phrases and concepts are a bit alien - and I'm not sure that there is always a British alternative for example an ingredient for veggie pies is 'biscuit mix' I think it means something different in USA. Not all campsites allow open fires so pit cooking and hot rock cooking might be tricky. There are some great recipes for the dutch oven ... we don't have one and they're quite expensive. There are still some things that we will enjoy having a go at... pizza soup and bloomin muffins. Book was bought as a birthday gift for a boy - he was underwhelmed but I was quite excited.

If you already work with kids outside there won't be much in here that is new to you, but if you don't and are thinking about starting (and you really should) then this is a good place to start. Its not full of frightening challenges, everything is achievable and the layout provides you with everything you need to know, and should allay any anxieties you may have about using fire around kids.

Wish I had bought the hard copy. Good to use with cubs and scouts, for pack evenings or camp fires
