Subject Description

Camping can seem daunting for a first timer, but if you prepare in advance you'll be ready for whatever may happen, and you'll probably enjoy it too! I'll teach you how to choose your clothing based on the weather, select and use the best overnight gear like tents and sleeping bags, the safest and easiest ways to start a campfire, and how to cook in the outdoors.

If you're looking for a vicarious camping experience while locked down, I recommend the show Survivorman by Les Stroud. He spends seven days alone in different ecosystems, with little to no equipment, filming himself (and carrying all his camera gear) as he searches for food, starts fires with traditional methods, builds shelters and seeks water.

Spring is here! While it's still cold and wet outside, it's also a great time to begin preparing for camping season. Pick up some new equipment, test setting up your tent inside your house (kids love that), and fire up your camp stove (outside only) to get a feel for how it works. This will also help you get into the camping spirit.
