The Great American Backyard Campout

Backyard CampingJune 25th is the National Wildlife Federation’s “Great American Backyard Campout” (register here), which helps raise funds for programs that help to get kids outdoors via programs such as Green Hour, Nature Find, Trees for the 21st Century, Certified Wildlife and Schoolyard Habitats that get kids outside, for a healthier generation.

Register your “team” of campers, join a “team” of campers who have already registered near you, or simply donate to a camper, a team or make a general donation to our mission.

Not only will your family experience the wonders of the great outdoors, but you’ll raise funds for vital NWF programs to get American kids outside—one night can make all the difference.

It’s family fun with a purpose: helping American kids benefit from outdoor time.

My goal is to raise $100 for the National Wildlife Federation. Part of NWF’s mission is to create healthier families by reacquainting us with nature, whether that means spending time in our backyards and neighborhoods, or a nearby campground. By participating in the Great American Backyard Campout I’m hoping to remind people that we can have a great time without the TV, without the video games and even without a roof over our heads!
