Annual Great Backyard Camp Out in June.
Connecting kids and nature has become a national priority. And for parents planning a summer family vacation there is really no substitute for spending a summer night camping under the stars.
Stargazing and fireflies, dandelion wishes and acorn people, skipping stones and fishing, campfire stories and s’mores - campouts make memories
for a lifetime. No two adventures will ever be the same but all will yield memories worth the effort. The fact is camping adventures may be enjoyed in many ways and as many locations. From the crazy fun of a Camp Jellystone vacation
to a tenting spot under the stars in a national park or perhaps a state park with a yurt by the beach
, camping with kids is an easy way to share the natural wonders of a state park, nearby camp ground, national wildlife refuge or your own backyard. Armed with bug repellent and sunscreen, a flashlight and a compass, a canteen of water and a magnifying glass – let the adventure begin.
Registration is free.
Camping with friends and family is a great way to get outside in the great outdoors. If June 28 th isn’t convenient for you, no problem! You can still be a part of this year’s Campout, support this movement and get all the camping tips and activities we have in store. Just register now and camp at a later date of your own choosing.
