The City of Greensboro is hosting a series of camping classes for families. "Rough'n It, Intro to Camping" kicks off on April 19th.

The classes cover basics -- from packing to gear and food -- you'll cover survival tips while taking courses in Greensboro's Bur-Mil Park. The classes cap with a camping excursion in Hagan-Stone Park.

All necessary materials will be provided by REI Greensboro, where Fox 8's Nicole Ferguson visited or a preview of the classes.
