The couple buy their equipment and, after meeting two bicyclists in the countryside, are able to use their Camping Club Yearbook to point them in the direction of the nearest site. The film shows their efforts to put up a tent and light their gas burner and the entertainment available at various sites such as canoeing, country dancing and the Feast of Lanterns. The film ends with the code of camping rules.
