My First Camping Book
Discover the great outdoors with this fun guide to camping: planning, cooking, safety, activities
Start with 'Getting Ready to Camp' and plan everything you need to take with you, and why not make a camp diary before you go so you can record every camping trip? Once you arrive at your campsite, you will find out how to identify a good place to camp, how to put up your tent and the best way to store your food. Once you’ve pitched your tent, learn how to make a campfire (with the help of an adult!) – the recipes in 'Campsite Cooking' are full of fun treats such as hot dogs, s'mores and fire-baked apples. You’ll never get bored with 'Camping Activities', which has tips on how to climb trees safely, instructions on how to make a sundial and insider knowledge on animal tracking. In 'When the Sun Goes Down', you will learn how to become an expert in shadow-puppets, how to identify different stars and constellations, and there are tips on how to tell a really scary ghost story. So roll up your sleeping bag, don’t forget your binoculars and start planning your next camping trip!
