Backyard Camping

Pack up your camping gear and journey into your backyard! Camping out so close to home does have many advantages like running water, television, computer and the kitchen. You can roast marshmallows (on your barbecue) and tell ghost stories.

Make it a memorable event by getting everyone involved. Each family member can have a special job in this outdoor adventure. Don't think of it as your backyard. How about exotic locations like the Australian Outback or a National Park? Here are some great Tips for Camping with Kids.

Have fun on this mini-getaway. It can be a good indicator of how your family would be on a real camping trip. The beauty of the backyard is that you can always run home to get what was forgotten.
