This week Visionary, Motivation, and Progress class made dampers (or camp bread). Mixing together flour, water and baking powder to a dough and wrapping around a stick to cook on the fire can be tricky, especially as some children still don’t like getting their hands dirty!
Before making the camp bread, willow sticks were peeled using scout knives. This involved the children learning about knife safety and how to handle the knife correctly. Which much concentration the children successfully peeled their sticks ready for camp bread cooking.
