Camp Out under the Stars…even in your own Backyard

The National Wildlife Federation is inviting families to sign up for Saturday’s sixth annual Great American Backyard Campout,

Thousands of people across the country will gather in backyards, neighborhoods, communities and parks for the one-night event created to get kids and families outdoors to sleep under the stars. Participants can register for the event online and virtually participate with others across the country.

The National Wildlife Federation has also partnered with American Girl dolls — and its 2010 Girl of the Year, Lanie — in promoting activities encouraging families to connect with nature, and participants in the Campout event also will receive a $1 off coupon on Hershey’s chocolate bars, perfect for s’mores.

The Great American Backyard Campout serves as a fundraiser for the National Wildlife Federation by inviting people to get sponsor donations for their campsite. The money raised will support the National Wildlife Federation’s Be Out There movement, which encourages parents to provide more unstructured outdoor play time for their children.

Families who register also will have access to free Campout games, nature activities, camping tips and campfire songs. For more information and to register visit http://www.greatamericanbackyardcampout.org/ for more information.
