Want to expose them to the great outdoors without leaving home?
Pitch your tent, grab some marshmallows and have a fun family campout in your own backyard.
A backyard campout has all of the joys of camping without the cost or time spent traveling. It’s the perfect solution.
In this article I’ll show you how to have a fantastic, adventure-filled campout right in your own backyard.
Why Have a Backyard Campout?
A backyard campout is a quick and simple way to enjoy the fun of camping without some of the hassles. You can take your kids on an outdoor adventure with very little planning, and you never even have to pack the car.
Camping is a great way to bond as a family, talking and telling stories around a campfire. It helps teach kids the value of working together to pitch a tent or cook a meal (or a s’more). And it’s a great way to get kids outdoors, watching the clouds or the stars instead of videos; playing live games instead of video games.
