Great American Campout

The National Wildlife Federation’s (NWF) Great American Campout is a summer-long celebration of camping as a way to connect with nature and wildlife.

NWF is asking people to take the pledge to camp in their backyard, neighborhood, local parks, state parks, national parks, cabins, RVs, or treehouses. The body, mind, and spirit benefits from outdoor play are well-documented and numerous, and create a lasting connection to nature and wildlife that will help you have a happier, healthier family.

National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout is also part of Great Outdoors Month® in June. NWF celebrates everyone who’s getting outdoors and camping on Great American Campout day on June 24 and encourages you to re-live the camping experience all summer long.
