From School Library Journal
Grade 4 Up?Families who camp, school classes that make treks to outdoor sites, and scout and youth group leaders will find this book to be a detailed compendium for safe, environmentally friendly, and joyous campfire experiences. Guidance is offered for selecting a location; creating wax firestarters (with adult guidance); and building, burning, and dousing campfires. Tips for seating, singing, cooking, storytelling, and conducting science demonstrations are included; fire, hatchet, knife, and cooking safety are given good coverage. Special features include making cooking utensils out of green wood, identifying night sounds, observing and identifying creatures by the shape and glow of their eyes, and both beautiful and silly songs complete with guitar cords. Peppy black-and-white pencil sketches appear throughout. No other current title offers so much information about creating a successful evening in camp.?Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH

Gr. 4^-6. Whether readers are novice or experienced campers, the information presented in this in-depth exploration of camping will make their next excursions into the woods enjoyable, successful, and safe. A wide variety of pertinent topics is included: how to select the right wood for the specific type of fire that is being built; recipes for food to cook over an open fire; games to play; songs, complete with the music and lyrics, to sing; ghost stories for spine-tingling telling; helpful hints for interacting--or not--with wildlife and insects; guides to viewing the night sky; and the appropriate gear for sleeping under the stars. Black-and-white illustrations are scattered throughout the lively, readable text. Safety precautions and the need for adult supervision and/or assistance are mentioned when necessary. Similar in format to books in the Brown Paper Schoolbook series, this extensive guidebook will entice young readers to pack up their camping equipment, gather up their friends, and head for the nearest campground--even if it is only the backyard.

I used to build the fire as a kid so that I know, but if you don't, lots-tons of information on that. Also camp songs we used to sing-along with guitar chords, but it also suggest playing any portable instrument. Ghost stories given as well as camp fire games along with some help on recognizing the sky at night, different types of trees and which animals may be watching you in the dark.
Got desserts fixed up for you in the book too.
This would be a fun book for camping in the house and/or in the backyard too- before braving the wilderness or campground with your young kids. You can choose different activities to try out first.
Interesting that even little kids think that the camping in this book is the real camping and not sitting in your cabin watching videos-which a little kid told me happened to him after being taken to the cabin for his first camping trip. "Where's the fire outside and the singing around it?" he asked. "That's camping." I agreed with him. Poor kid.
This book will help you provide that experience.
The authors show you how to make a reflector oven. The main feature if this book is the fun activities for around the fire such as stories songs, games, etc. Teaches kids how to identify the stars easily and even identify features on the face of the moon. I plan to use this with our Cub Scouts.
