School is out! Summer has begun! What fun plans do you have to do with your kiddos? We have already been water fighting, letter writing, cookie making, fort building, and the list goes on, but what we are really excited to do is go camping! Our family LOVES camping! There’s just something about being outside that is amazing! So, for our June Family Challenge, you guessed it, we want you to camp with your family! But don’t worry, it won’t be that hard. All you have to do is set up camp in your own back yard! (Or if you’re like us and you live in “hot as all get out Arizona”, then you’ll be camping in your living room!
According to the NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION :
“On June 22, 2013, thousands of people across the nation will gather in their backyards, neighborhoods, communities and parks to take part in a one-night FREE event that will provide an experience for all generations to connect with nature. “
Join in for our June Family Challenge!
Here are some ideas for fun things to do at your backyard campout:
