Outdoor School – Thanksgiving Dutch Oven Dinner

Saturday, November 23 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Turkey day is right around the corner, why not celebrate a few days early with a traditional Thanksgiving feast prepared in a fun and non-traditional way! Cooking in a Dutch Oven is a unique and delicious way of preparing meals outside. Using the heat from coals, the food is slow cooked and full of flavor. The cook time may take a little longer, but the end result is well worth the wait. We will prepare the food, cook, and eat together- each sharing in the delicious meal we make as a team.
