The Beginner's Guide to Camping

If camping is something you've always wanted to try, but didn't know how to get started, Mark Holtzman's 26-minute DVD will show you the basics.

The Beginner's Guide to Camping is an award-winning how-to DVD that's fun, enjoyable to watch and not too technical.

Twenty topics are covered, each with short, concise segments. They include: choosing a campground, tents, rain flys and canopies, sleeping bags, flashlights and lantern, coolers, packing the vehicle, meal planning, building a campfire and making the camper's favorite sweet treat S'mores.

Holtzman is an engaging, articulate host and the DVD is well worth the price of $19.95. For ordering information visit www.beginnersguidetocamping.com
