Whether in the Sola, on a normal Jungschar afternoon or on a team outing, a cosy fire should almost never be missing. But which leader does not know it, that he quickly reaches for kindling cubes due to lack of knowledge or lack of time and inwardly knows: "I have sinned against the Jungschar law!" :)
Well this booklet can't give you extra time making a fire, but it can give you tips and tricks on how to make a fire survival style.
These topics are covered:
- What are the regulations/laws of fire making?
- Different natural tinder (tinder sponge/birch bark etc.)
- Different spark generators (ignition steel, fire drill etc.)
- Fire forms (pyramid, layered fire)
- Fire drilling
- Different dishes for over the fire
The booklet is very good for personal use, for leaders but also for children.
Have fun reading through it and then maybe making a fire.
