Cheaper Than Dirt! Quick Camping TipSince 2004, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) sponsors—along with Disney and Coleman—a yearly event on the fourth Saturday in June called the Great American Backyard Campout. The Great American Backyard Campout is part of the NWF’s Be Out There campaign—a continuous drive to get children to spend time out doors.

This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the Great American Backyard Campout. Whether you lay your sleeping bag out in the backyard, pitch a tent at your nearest national park or take the RV to the Grand Canyon, the NWF is hoping to get 200,000 Americans to camp out on June 28, 2014. For every person who pledges to camp, the NWF Board of Directors, along with other sponsors will donate $2, hoping to reach its $400,000 goal.

Even if you cannot make it out on June 28, you and your family will still be counted toward the NWF’s goal if you pledge to take your family camping this summer. Pledging is free.

The National Wildlife Federation is an organization dedicated to conservation. With thousands of hunters, anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts, the NWF works to solidify funding for hunters access to hunting lands, protecting wildlife habitats and wetlands and protecting endangered species.
