Discover The Fun Of Backyard Camping

Published by anonymous


Going camping is a fun-filled activity that people look forward to during the summer.  Sleeping under the stars, experiencing nature, and relaxing from everyday life are just a few of the experiences.  However, all the planning, organization, collection of necessary equipment and gear can be overwhelming.  Why not consider having a backyard campout instead?  Make fantastic memories by getting the entire family involved!  Here are some ideas to get you started:


Getting Set Up

Lay a tarp on the ground before setting up camp.  Get older kids involved by helping set up tents and chairs. Have younger kids help out by gathering sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets.  Light torches to provide light for later in the evening and to ward off mosquitos and pesky bugs.  Be sure to gather toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other before-bed items!       


Yummy Campout Treats

Special treats and snacks are one of the best parts of camping!  Foil dinners can be a great way to get the kids involved in cooking and have a quick, easy meal outside.  Other yummy snacks include trail mix, fruits, and vegetables.  And of course, no camping “trip” would be complete without s’mores!


Evening Activities Before Bedtime

Outdoor games and activities create fun memories and traditions.  Blend new and old ideas for each member of the family to participate and enjoy!  We’ve collected a few new ideas on our Backyard Camping Pinterest Board.  Be sure to check it out for some camping inspiration!
