Do we need a designated "national camping month?" I don't think so. We either love camping & hiking in the great outdoors, or we don't. For those who do, any month of the year can offer a beneficial and unique experience. In keeping with our 2022 Summer Reading theme, "Read Beyond the Beaten Path" (a reading challenge for both Adults & Kids - click here for more info.), I thought I'd select a few of our camping and hiking titles that might inspire you to pack up the tent or camper and get going. Don't forget to take along some print or digital books!
