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.
Be a part of the movement! The positive effects of daily, unstructured time outdoors on kids’ health are well-documented and wide-ranging. National Wildlife Federation encourages families and friends to Be Out There™ in order to give back to American children what they don’t even know they’ve lost—their connection to the natural world.
If June 22nd isn’t convenient for you, no problem! You can still be a part of this year’s Campout, support this movement and get all the camping tips and activities we have in store. Just register now and camp at a later date of your choosing.
Camping with friends and family is a great way to get outside in the great outdoors. These testimonials from our campers say it all:
"This is a wonderful program for getting kids excited about
the outdoors and encouraging more people to try camping."
"Just in time for my son's birthday. What a great idea
to get kids engaged with the outdoors!"
"Thank you so much for putting this on; I had wanted to do it with my kids
and this gave me a great motivation to do it."
