Great American Backyard Campout

Sponsored by National Wildlife Federation

On June 22, 2013, thousands of families across the nation will gather in their backyards, neighborhoods, communities, and parks and enjoy a night under the stars while helping fundraise for a leading conservation organization. As part of the National Wildlife Federation’s “Be Out There” movement, the Great American Backyard Campout encourages people to get outside and connect with the natural world. It is especially important for kids because, for the first time in our country’s history, we have an entire generation that is growing up disconnected from nature. Spending time outdoors, enjoying activities like camping or just exploring, makes kids happier and healthier.

The National Wildlife Federation provides everything you need to head out into the great outdoors. The Great American Backyard Campout website has packing lists, recipes, nocturnal wildlife guides, exploration activities, nature games, fundraising prizes, and more.
