Imagine spending time outdoors with the kids sleeping under the stars, cooking pancakes on an outdoor fire, and enjoying all that nature has to offer. Truly, this is an experience to treasure for a lifetime. Families will cherish these memories forever.

Tim Dales wrote this new, step-by-step book to reveal the tips and techniques that he has learned from over 25 years of camping and hiking as a Boy Scout, camping with his own family and as a Scoutmaster, leading Scouts on campouts. “Because our motto is ‘Be Prepared’ we want to prepare you for the best campout you and your family can have”, said Tim.
