It’s that time of year again so get out your flashlights, pick your best marshmallow stick, and roll out your sleeping bag. Warm weather is upon us and that equates to CAMPING!!!! What are you doing June 26th of this year? If you don’t already have plans I have a great idea for you and your family.
On June 26th, 2010 the National Wildlife Federation is asking for your support in raising money and maintaining programs that bring kids into the great outdoors. The event is called the Great American Backyard Campout.
The idea behind it is to get kids and families outside enjoying the great outdoors and helping others to do the same. National Wildlife Federation will help you find a campsite in your area if needed and has set up campout teams that raise money together. When you register your campsite you can choose whether you want to set a fundraising goal, you’ll get your own personal page to share your stories with others; you can watch how much money you’ve raised and even send personal invites to others.
The National Wildlife Federation asks that you don’t miss out on letting them know you’re camping! By signing up your campsite, you’ll join thousands of people across the country who are making a statement that the outdoors rocks. Also, you’ll have access to free activities, tips, songs, stories and recipes that will make your Backyard Campout a night to remember.
If you aren’t much for camping there are other ways you can participate. You can organize a community campout, help others plan their campout, spread the word by connecting others to the site, become a fan of Great American Backyard Campout on Facebook, make a donation to a camper, or even sponsor an event.
Enjoy the great outdoors and roast a smore for me. Check out some of these great camping books to get help get you motivated from the Green and Clean Mom affiliate shop.
