Great American Backyard Campout

The Great American Backyard Campout is this weekend! It's looking like it's going to be GREAT weather so why not pitch a tent in the backyard and have some fun?

Round up the neighbors and have a neighborhood campout...or gather all the cousins and sleep outside. We're having a bunch of families join us to pitch tents, sit around the campfire and do s'mores and have fun!

There's lots of outdoor games you can play, chase some fireflies, sing songs around the campfire, do some stargazing or even do Ranger Rick's Night Owl Challenge. If you're looking for some recipes, check out Hershey's Website for some great ideas!

Remember how much time you spent outside as a kid? Encourage your kids to spend more time outside too...a backyard campout is a great way to start and just think of the memories they will have. =)
