Joey Cooper is a small but eager boy who wants nothing more than to be a member of the Wilderness Club. Although he has already tried and failed several times, he is ready to try again. Despite being persuaded not to humiliate himself by his best friend Timmy, he tries again and fails. Upon returning home, he is surprised to find that his mother has spent her hard earned money on new camping equipment for his trip. Not having the heart to tell her he didn't make it into the club, Joey goes off to follow the group on their adventure. Joey finds himself in the unlikely role of hero when he saved the rest of the group from their kidnappers.
