How To Build The Only Five Campfires You'll Ever Need

There is no camping without a campfire, unless your idea of camping is sitting around the warm glow of a laptop screen outside your home, so avid campers have to know their way around a pile of fiery wood.

Groups like the Boy and Girl Scouts teach young recruits how to build a campfire out of gathered wood and kindling, but the basic Tipi style they teach you doesn't last as long as the Star, and isn't as effective for cooking as the Platform.

So if you’re planning on heading to the great outdoors this summer you should check out this article that teaches you How To Build The Only Five Campfires You’ll Ever Need, and make sure you invest in a Zippo lighter (or some waterproof matches) before you go!

Reminds me of a summer where I was Maintenance Director at a Boy Scout camp and one of my duties was to set up a campfire for the end of each two week camping session. I tried to make them memorable. My favorite was a lakeside campfire. Had the Archery Director and another counselor dressed up as Indians, paddle a canoe down to the campfire side and lit the campfire with a flaming arrow. Epic.
