North Area Backwoodsman Competition

Written by Jonas Lok and Ryan Ng, Edited by Jaydon Tay

Backwoods cooking is a method of cooking without the use of kitchen utensils and it typically takes place over an open fire. Equipment used are typically made with materials found in nature, such as using bamboo to make wooden thongs, hence it can also be considered a form of survival cooking.

During this year's North Area Backwoodsman competition, every team competed with each other to cook the given ingredients using various methods and present the food nicely, where the team with the tastiest and most aesthetically pleasing dishes winning.

We are proud to announce that our Scouts have won First and Second places in the North Area Backwoodsman competition!

Below are some reflections from the Scouts who took part in the competition:

“Before the competition, my team and I had trained hard and were well prepared for the competition. During the competition, we were able to work well with each other and cook food such as chicken and fish over an open fire. It was an enriching experience competing against other Scout Troops and having to perform under pressure. I definitely would go again if I had the chance to!”

- Jonas Lok, Secondary 3 Scout

“Overall, I am very pleased at the progress and results of today’s competition. Our team has successfully cooked all the dishes well with high efficiency and productivity. Everyone knew their roles and adapted from the plan when necessary, allowing us to clinch good results for this competition.”

- Ryan Ng, Secondary 3 Scout
