The 10th annual Great American Backyard Campout is Saturday, June 28. National Wildlife Federation is encouraging people to camp outside on June 28th, or a night of your choice.
National Wildlife Federation’s Board of Directors and other friends have offered to donate $2 in support of NWF’s wildlife conservation work for every person that participates in this year’s Campout— up to $400,000! You can register at the NWF site. You can camp in your backyard, balcony or a campground. They also provide a Campsite Finder which offers you the chance to join other camping teams. National Wildlife Federation hopes to connect more people and families with being in the great outdoors.
National Wildlife Federation also has some Camping Tips, games, songs, stories and recipes on their website.
As a Girl Scout leader I must ask that you please don’t forgoet the s’mores. Did you know that s’mores first appeared in the 1927 Girl Scout Handbook, Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.
I”ll keep you up to date on our upcoming camping plans and recipes. We just recently acquired some great camping equipment and I can’t wait to use it.
There are some days I just want to stay home and relax with my family. I found this list of 22 Best Family Movies from http://www.the36thavenue.com/
A few of these we’ve seen but there a few I’ve forgotten about and a couple I’ve never heard of. This list will come in handy during our summer break. Hopefully I can get a few days in here and there for well needed downtime.
