Arkansas 4-H Virtual Camps
Virtual Camp Sessions:
We have transitioned from weekly to monthly Virtual Camp Sessions. These sessions will be on the 3rd Thursday at 5:30pm for Fall 2021. I will post a supplies list at least 1 week in advance. These sessions are open to anyone who would like to join. I am also working on posting follow up videos to each of the sessions. You can find links to videos for past sessions in the links below. Check back for information about our next session.
Be sure to keep supplies out of reach of small children or pets. Youth be sure to get permission/supervision when using items that could be harmful or extremely messy (scissors/lighters/paint/etc.).
Clear Ornaments - Plastic/Glass (I recommend round or oval, you will need several)

This series is designed to help you learn how to cook over a campfire. It focuses on techniques rather than recipes. While we explain the recipe we use, we know that you may have your own and would like you to encourage you to take your favorite at home recipes with you to the campfire. Cooking over the campfire with cast iron may seem like a daunting task with limited options on what you can cook. However, if you take your time and manage your heat the possibilities are endless. Be safe when cooking especially over an open fire. Happy cooking!
