You’ve never camped. Or, you’ve camped…back when you were a kid. Now you want to go. So, let’s go.

Let’s help you get out there. And, not just get out there, but get out there right. There are things to know. There are things to buy. This course guides you to doing it the right way the first time. We’ve got 40 years of trial and error that you can use as your launch pad. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but what you do need to buy will be built to last, will keep you dry and warm, and will keep you going again and again.

Areas of focus:

  • Essential equipment needed
  • Why we depend on the gear we do
  • Gear you don’t need
  • Gear that brings comfort and convenience
  • How to plan a trip that you will enjoy
  • What to know about the weather
  • Camping safety
  • The proper first aid kit
  • Camping with a family
  • Camping solo
  • Navigation basics (map reading)
  • Food planning and preparation
  • Building a bonfire and bonfire safety
  • How to do your business in the woods
  • The basics of packing a vehicle
    and much more…
