Bandicoot Scout Jake wants to earn his Golden Wombat merit badge, and needs to go camping to do it. His Mom and Dad don't want him to go alone, so they convince Taz to go with him. Taz goes to the river to fill his canteen but falls in and floats over a waterfall. Jake saves him with skills he learned while earning the Swinging on Vines to Save Peole in a Waterfall merit badge. Several other camping tasks go badly for Taz, but Jake remains cheerful. Eventually they get lost, then it begins raining. Still, Jake tries to keep their spirits up by singing a camping song, but Taz only sings "Taz hate water, Taz hate water." Finally, Jake has a conniption and yells "All you had to do was sleep, and you couldn't even get that right!" Luckily, they find themselves at home where they make up and spend the rest of the night camping in Jake's bedroom.
