Join the Great American Backyard Campout!
Join American families across the U.S. on June 23, 2012 for the Great American Backyard Campout!
Once again the National Wildlife Federation is hosting their annual “Great American Backyard Campout”. On this night thousands of families take to setting up camp in the backyard. For many children, this is their first step into a lifetime of outdoor adventures and fun. The whole goal of this event is to get people involved with the Be Out There™ movement– which is dedicated to getting children outside so they can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, happy, outdoor play.

All you need to participate is a tent, a couple of flashlights, and some snacks! This is a great way to introduce children to the joys of tent camping in the safety of their own backyard.If you register with the website, they will give you your own webpage to show photographs and tell all about your backyard camping experience!
We hope you have fun camping in the backyard on June 23 but if you can’t do it on that day, you can still register with the National Wildlife Federation Event and camp out on any day that is convenient for you.
