Great American Backyard Campout
The Great American Backyard Campout® encourages everyone to get outside and camp, to renew his or her connection with nature or experience it for the first time.
It also provides an opportunity for parents to re-connect with their kids following an endless schedule of programmed activities during the school year. So turn off your TVs, iPods, Playstations, computers, and cell phones and experience a night outside.
