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.

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.

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.

Cannot say enough about this book! I read it cover to cover and learned a ton. My son was interested but not up for fighting me for it. JK. I got it at the library but might buy a used one because it is so good! The information is really easy to comprehend and the topics are definitely kid-oriented and fun. They are varied as well - not just your typical survival stuff but entertainment and fun facts, etc. Great illustrations as well. I think I finally get how to use a compass now! I would say this would be best for kids in the range of 8 to 12 but not necessarily limited to that range. It's neither juvenile nor mature. Fantastic!

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.

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!

Lots of good information for kids, but maybe more camp songs and easy "fun" activities is what I was looking for. I ended up reading it more than my kids did, but then maybe they were a bit too young (8 and 6).

I didn't read up on this book, it was a hey Mom we should get that item so I ordered.... when the book came it was a great size to take along on camp trips however it is full of a lot of stuff.... well suited for an older child that can read and is wanting to find out everything outdoors and camping. Should be pretty interesting for the kids once they get older.
