Organizing Your

Campfire Cookery Workshop


The Campfire Cookery Workshop is typically four to five hours, though it could be as long as a full day. It is also possible to pair the Campfire Cookery Workshop with a half day of Day Hiking in the Escalante Canyons or with the Discovering Traditional Outdoor Skills Workshop.

Hosting and organizing a workshop is easy.  If you are interested in a workshop for your group or organization, please visit our Hosting a Workshop page.

Since each workshop is individually designed for your organization or group, the rate for the workshop is based on various factors, which we discuss in the design process.
