The weather is warmer, the kids are out of school, and the outdoors have never looked so good—summer is finally here. It is a great time to set off on your family’s next vacation, but that comes with its own set of challenges, like time spent planning, booking tickets, and travelling. What if we told you that your next adventure doesn’t require a detailed itinerary or a heavy suitcase? We’re calling all nature lovers to venture out into their own backyard for a non-traditional camping experience!
Make Memories On Your Time
The best part about backyard camping? Not having to take time off or wait for a three-day weekend to do it! Head out to your yard with a tent, s’mores, and blankets any day of the week. Living for the weekend is so overrated. You can even make it a weekly occurrence and call it Campout Wednesdays!
Make It Romantic
Ready to create your own romantic little escape for just the two of you? Put up some dreamy, sparkling lights and set out some cozy cushions for a night under the stars. Perhaps you can uncork your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy some takeout for the perfect low-maintenance date night.
Make It Memorable
If you really want to add some pizzazz to your at-home campout, try throwing in some games and challenges. Start with going unplugged for the night. Leave your phones in the house so you can immerse yourself in the experience. Then, play board games that you otherwise wouldn’t take with you if you had to hike to your campground. You can even try out a new camp recipe, like making fajita veggies with some foil over a fire or using white chocolate instead of dark when you make s’mores.
