London, England (PRWEB) August 15, 2009
Canvas Holidays, specialists in camping holidays abroad, are teaching barbecue skills for fathers as part of outdoor survival lessons on their family camping holidays.
Fathers who have left the bangers black or bloody in the past may find their families give them a gentle push towards the survival sessions, which teach outdoor skills such as map reading and shelter building as well as how to properly cook a barbecue meal. There will be barbecuing demonstrations put on by campsite staff, outlining the possible hazards to the taste buds and to the health of the family on camping holidays.
The programme has been launched in the picturesque region of Brittany, a region of France better known for its seafood dishes of fish, mussels and oysters than for burgers and sausages. Campsite staff (known as couriers) will host the lessons twice a week during holidays at Camping de l'Atlantique, Fouesnant.
The managing director of Canvas Holidays, Paul Carter, hopes the lessons will prove popular: "We expect this activity to do well on the trial run in Brittany. If it meets expectations, we will roll it out in all our Family Extra campsites. As well as being informative, this will be a fun addition to the activities we usually lay on."
After instruction from the on-site couriers, the fathers taking the barbecue lessons will be encouraged to demonstrate what they've learnt with a celebrity chef-style cook-off. Then the family will get involved, putting on the blindfolds for the all-important 'taste test.' It is the kind of fun activity that people look for on a family camping holiday.
Paul Carter added: "The survival lessons are all about enjoying life in the fresh air. We are always looking for ways to improve things. Camping holidays abroad should be fun, but they should also be safe; if we can help improve Dad's barbecue skills while everyone has a laugh, then all the better."
