What is this website all about?
The ﬁrst goal of Kevin Callanʼs the Happy Camper website is to entertain. Secondly, we hope to provide you with a resource of information to help you get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Our videos and website content are designed to shatter the myth that you need to be a survival expert in order to experience the richness wilderness adventures can provide.
Weʼre not perfect. Weʼll make mistakes, but have fun doing it and so will you.
