Great American Backyard Campout


Join us for an unforgettable campout and build lasting memories with your family and friends. Enjoy setting up your tent and campsite, being together at sunset and gazing at the starlit sky. It is something simple that your family can do to promote happier and healthier children. We provide the bonfire, s’mores, stargazing, family programming and continental breakfast. Restrooms will be available throughout the event. Participants must provide their own camping gear. Please let us know if your family has any dietary restrictions by the registration deadline. Families are welcome to bring their own food for the entire event.
