Camping season creates such fabulous experiences for the whole family - from figuring out how to set up the tent to building bonfires and roasting marshmallows for s'mores!  Pack up your crew to head to the great outdoors for your next adventure or cozy up at home and enjoy this fabulous A-Z book that offers an exploration of one of our most American pastimes!


Learn about national parks, camping necessities, famous conservationists, ecosystems, and so much more from veteran camper Helen Foster James as she takes kids and adults on a trip to the wilderness from their own backyard.  Just don't forget to pack the s'mores!


And to make your adventure even more fun, we've added a hand-felted Camper Coin Purse.  Created from all-natural wool, this super-fun little bonus is simply adorable with its moon-shaped zipper pull, sparkly star-filled sky over a retro camper and tiny campfire.  The coin purse is an original Wild Woolies design by dZi Handmade, member of the Fair Trade Federation, so your purchase of this book bundle provides more than just income in an impoverished region, it offers healthcare, education, employment, training, and more in Nepal.
