Today is the Great American Backyard Campout! When was the last time you spent a night out under the stars? Tonight, thousands of families will set up a tent in the backyard or a local park to celebrate life in the great outdoors.
The Great American Backyard Campout is sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation. It is an important part of the organization’s “Be Out There” campaign, which is dedicated to getting children outside so they can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. Camping out in the backyard is also a wonderful opportunity to observe and learn about the wildlife that surrounds us every day.
Tonight, set up a tent in your yard and camp out as a family! Visit the Great American Backyard Campout website to find camping tips, recipes, activities, songs, and more. Enjoy!
