I am using a camping theme in my 3rd-4th classroom this year. I saw this book on Amazon and decided to give it a try. It was all that I hoped it would be plus a lot more. The book is packed with pratical ideas for kids to use to prepare to go camping as well as while they are camping. The book is a permanent fixture on my desk and the kids and I are using it as a reference all through the day.

Camp Out! is full of creative and informative lessons and fun activities. Truly a unique book. Any kid from video game addict to natural born scout will find this book engaging! it contains kid-level explanations without talking down to kid-level. As an adult I enjoyed reading this book and felt the cartoons weren't too cutesy. Good for both boys and girls.

This is a great book that will spark many wonderful experiences with my daughter. For sure 5 stars!!
Major sections include activities, crafts, nature, and cooking. This was a logical organization, but as the father of a younger child I think it would have been nice to have some guidance and organization by age appropriateness.

We borrowed this book at the library for an upcoming camping trip and decided to purchase it! It is a one-stop book for everything you need to know to camp (back packing, tent, trailer etc.). Safety, meal plans, knots, crafts, activities, star-gazing, trail marking, animal tracking, packing and so much more!! The kids loved looking at it to prepare for our trip. We are looking forward to years of camping with our family, this will be a mainstay on our bookshelves.

I bought this for my grandchildren and have been having the time of my life doing such things as "sprouting my socks". This book is filled with many great activities for kids and adults as well. Simply delightful. It encourages us to make the most of the few precious moments we have to spend with our little guys.

This book is awesome! It is chock-full of great ideas! This book covers everything from making all kinds of different knots to identifying animal tracks to outdoor games to the night sky and much, much more. I am helping with a Brownie troop getting ready to do an overnight camping trip and this book has helped tremendously with ideas of activities for the girls. If you can only afford one book--this is it!

Format: Paperback
This book is by far the most comprehensive camping guide for kids. Has so much information! Tons of activities and lots of useful scientific knowledge. It is worth buying the book for the night sky chapter alone. It has all of the information about constellations and their myths that the other books on the market have, but also has the best seasonal star maps with information about how to read them, and information about the moon and other visible planets. The information about tracks and scat is also very informative and easy to read. The only complaint that I have is the book may be too big for it to be carried around while hiking, etc. Wish there was a day version and night version to break it up and make it easier to carry.

I had reserved this book twice from the library and finally just told myself I need to buy it (which is rare). It has several great recipe ideas and a lot of fun activites you can do with your kids while your camping or even just hanging out in your backyard. Even though it is written from a childs prospective it is just as much fun for adults. Boredom can often be a problem for us when we go camping but with all the craft projects, games, and fun activities in this book everyone has more fun. It also has a lot of tips to make the trip easier before you leave so make sure you read through it before you go.
