Laid Back Camp (Yuru Camp) Plot

The anime series narrates the adventures of two alfresco young girls Rin Shima, Nadeshiko Kagamihara, and their friends as they travel to various campsites across the country.
Rin is a very simple and non-materialistic girl. Unlike other girls of her age, Rin loves spending her free time alone camping at the base of the beautiful Mount Fuji. During one such camping session, she met another girl called Nadeshiko who gets lost. Like Rin, Nadeshiko is heading to Mount Fuji but fell asleep on the way. She gets separated from her sister. Lost and alone, the only thing Nadeshiko could do is find her way back home and hope to reunite with her sister.
This encounter marks the beginning of a heartwarming tale of friendship between two girls. Yuru Camp is one pleasing anime series you would love to watch.
