The bear family - composed of Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Sister Bear, and Brother Bear - aspire to camp in a nearby forest. While the bears gather around the fire, the cubs decide to explore the area. It is the player's objective to navigate the bears through dangerous, enemy-filled places, and collect things such as honey and fresh fish. The bears can defend themselves from enemies by means of throwing rocks or swinging bug-catching nets.
From the beginning of the game, the player may access four different levels: Cave Adventure, Goin' Fishin' , Nature Walk, and Honey Hunting. Once all four are completed, a final, fifth stage Haunted Forest is uncovered.
