"Well I bought this DVD, and I have to say when they said it was for a 'beginner' they REALLY meant it.
I have been camping maybe 2 times in my life (using tent, etc.). Both of those times were in my youth, so I was curious as to some new techniques for camping.
This DVD did not add any new information to my already very limited knowledge about camping. The length was very short, and the topics covered were so completely simplified their information was useless...
Their advice about "cold weather" camping (Check into a hotel, sleep in your car, or wear heavy clothing in your sleeping bag!)
Their advice about "bad weather" camping (Put on a raincoat and play frisbee! Go to a movie in a nearby town!)
They covered important topics...Describing the intricate composition of "Smores" (Gram-Cracker + Chocolate + Marshmellow).
Seriously people... If you have an IQ over 75 there is not a single idea in here that you already do not know, or could find-out in a very simple search online or speaking to someone at a camping store.
Do not waste your money on this DVD."
Can't wait to go camping!

"I received "The Beginner's Guide to Camping" for Christmas along with a lot of other camping equipment. I wasn't planning on watching it until we were ready to go camping. Then I heard the kids giggling in the other room. They were watching it, so I sat down and joined them. It was very amusing, and very informative. I expecially liked the tip on keeping some of the ice in the cooler in a Ziploc bag to keep it clean for drinks. I'm sure I'll watch it again before our trip this summer, but now I actually think we're going to do it right and have a good time."
Very informative & very funny

"I have never been camping before and always wanted to try it but don't really know how. This DVD really helped me figure out where to start and I think we're going to try it this summer. It is also very funny and entertaining. The tips and tricks were great."
Great for Beginners

"This is a very basic video, explaining basic gear and do's and don'ts of camping. Easy to follow and brief, it is helpful for the first time camper."
