Welcome to!

I've created this website to share some tips and tricks that I have learned from over 25 years of camping and hiking as a Boy Scout, camping with my own family and as a Scoutmaster, leading Scouts on campouts.

I can still remember my first campout when I was a young boy growing up in Canada. My Dad was a Scoutmaster and as soon as I was able to walk he would take me to all the meetings and outings.  From a very young age I learned to enjoy the outdoors and all that it has to offer.
TheCampingGuy Book
Use the linked pages on the left to go to various Camping Topics.  If you want this information in a handy guidebook you can purchase my book.  A percentage of the proceeds will be given to the Boy Scouts.

I also have a Blog site at: where I talk about my camping trips and new tips and tricks that I learn, the more I camp.  Check it out, make some comments and share your camping experiences with all of us.  OH!  there's also a Special Report over there - "Essential Camping Gear for Beginner Campers".  So go and get it!

I hope you enjoy this site and that it gives you and your family some great ideas and skills to have successful and fun campouts.  Feel free to contact me at any time by using the Contact link below.

See you camping!
