For 10 years now the National Wildlife Federation has been sponsoring the Great American Backyard Campout. The Great American Backyard Campout is to help get people out camping and introduce new people to the joys of camping. This year they are hoping to get 200,000 thousand people out camping for the Great American Backyard Campout. Will you be one of them?
Here is a letter with more info about the Great American Backyard Campout.
Think back a moment to some of your favorite summer memories. Chances are, many of them involve vacations and spending time outside.
So what’s a great way to help build more favorite memories this summer?
On June 28th*, tens of thousands of people across the country will spend a night camping out under the stars in their own backyards, neighborhoods and local parks.
We really hope you will be one of them!
Whether you are a camping pro or new to pitching a tent, we have everything you need to make your Campout one to remember—from camp songs to games to recipes to camping tips.
Camping is a simple way to get outdoors and connected with nature, and create great memories. Plus, by participating in the Great American Backyard Campout, you can also help make an important difference for wildlife.
With National Wildlife Federation’s Board of Directors and other friends donating $2 to NWF’s wildlife conservation work for every Campout participant this year, up to $400,000, with your pledge today, we can reach the goal of getting 200,000 Campout participants and maximize the support for wildlife.
