10 Must Try Campfire Recipes Your Family Will Love

As a Girl Scout, one of my favorite activities was camping out at Camp Shantituck. We would cook easy campfire foil dinners using our favorite campfire recipes, sing songs around the campfire, and put on performances if I remember correctly. So many memories were made around that campfire.

When I think about being a mom, I tend to be a boring mom. We make memories, but they aren’t always these big and elaborate things. They are mainly simple with an emphasis on being present and showing my kids I love them. Sometimes they are silly and a little crazy.

Like when we set up a tent in our living room. In our apartment.

Yes, we did that.

It sounded like a great idea at the time. Little did I realize, the tent would take up the WHOLE living and dining area. That went a lot better when the tent was in our backyard in North Carolina. But I was determined to make it work. We made it work alright. Next time though, we might just make a blanket fort and sleep under that.

One of the things I want to do this Summer is to take my family camping. I would prefer “glamping” and gourmet camping recipes but we will see what happens. Here are some family-friendly, easy campfire meals I can’t wait to try.
