Step into the wild! Create space to explore the outdoors or bring nature closer to you.Read More
When the summertime arrives, so do the sounds and smell of a campfire! Camping is an activity loved by many and while we may have a favorite campground we’re itching to get back to – we can always have our very own campout at home or in the backyard.
Just like a regular camping trip away, work together from start to finish, and think outside of the box to make the perfect campsite for your space and family.
Treat your campout as you would a trip Encourage children to pack a backpack with everything they need for the “trip” and invite them to use their imagination about where the campsite might actually be. From packing to setting up, create a new world even if just for a night.
Can’t spend the whole night outdoors? Try indoors or set up space for children to play, explore, and day-camp.
When camping outdoors, even at home, things become even more unfamiliar in the dark so invite children to keep a lantern nearby or favorite stuffed animal that brings them comfort.
