Fun Freetime: Great American Campout

If you're trying to encourage your kids to become more eco-friendly citizens, consider participating in the Great American Backyard Campout,  is part of National Wildlife Federation’s “Be Out There” movement, which is designed to provide tools that inspire parents and children to spend time in the outdoors. This event, sponsored by Coleman, encourages families to enjoy being outside, and takes place June 23rd.

“Coleman stands for more than outdoor products – we are about the genuine connections and the memories made while families and friends enjoy themselves in the outdoors,” said David Allen, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Coleman. “Getting together in the outdoors is a great way for families to bond and it remains a positive, healthy and financially accessible escape from our busy day-to-day lifestyles.”

I know my family loves camping. Even if you don't have a lot of equipment, pitching an inexpensive pup tent outside - or just roasting s'mores around a campfire - is a great alternative to staying inside and watching TV.
