Who doesn’t love to camp? Well, probably a lot of people – but we have a great suggestion for gathering your family to experience all the same camping activities…right in your backyard!

The best thing about camping is that most kids love it and you can do all the same things right in your own backyard. First, pitch a tent. Don’t forget to bring a sleeping bag, pillows, a portable fire pit, insect repellant and a table (if you plan on eating outside.) The fun activities are endless. You can roast marshmellows and make s’mores, tell ghost stores, play hide ‘n seek, have a flashlight scavenger hunt or watch movies (to name a few.) Camping in your backyard is something you can enjoy with your family without the hassle of going out into the woods.
