Part of a Series: Adventures in the Great Outdoors.

“It’s time to get outside for a real adventure!” This brightly illustrated, inviting guide to camping includes everything from the necessary equipment to advice on selecting a site, setting up a tent, bathing outdoors, collecting rainwater, and tracking animals. The text captures the excitement of being in nature with friends and family, and “Stay Safe!” reminders on each page serve as tips for safely exploring the wilderness. The book suggests fun activities to do while hiking or after dark, offers brief explanations of the fragility of nature, and gently prompts readers to “Go Green” while camping. Back matter includes a glossary, a list of texts for further reading, a publisher-approved Web site, and an index.
