When the man with the yellow hat takes George camping, George is very excited. There is so much to do at the campsitepitching a tent, gathering water, meeting fellow campersthat George hardly knows where to begin (he only hopes the day will end with a roasted marshmallow!). When Georges knack for unintentional mischief gets him lost deep in the woods, George is scared . . . and being sprayed by a skunk only adds to the trouble. But George puts on a brave face, and he ends up saving the day when he puts out a small fire that could have endangered the forest.
