Take the Pledge to camp—in your backyard, your neighborhood, your local parks, state parks, and national parks, cabins, RVs, treehouses ... you name it! The Great American Campout is also part of Great Outdoors Month in June, a month designated to highlight the many kinds of outdoor activities that strengthen our bonds with nature. The National Wildlife Federation celebrates everyone who’s getting outdoors and camping on Great American Campout in June—and we encourage you to re-live the camping experience all summer long.
