America is going camping on Saturday, June 23, 2012 when the National Wildlife Federation sponsors the annual Great American Backyard Campout. This is a great opportunity to share the joy of RV camping with your friends and family. If you know someone who has been talking about buying an RV online, this is the perfect time to invite them to experience the excitement of RV camping first-hand.

Anyone can participate in the campout, and you don’t have to camp in your backyard. Book an RV┬ácampsite online and spend the day hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing — whatever you like to do best. If you wish, you can register your camping “team” and raise money to benefit National Wildlife Federation programs for children; but fundraising is optional.┬áThe purpose of the campout is to get children outdoors so they can experience everything the natural world has to offer.

The Great American Campout is your opportunity to share the joy of camping with someone who has never experienced the gooey goodness of a hot s’more or chatted for long hours around a crackling fire or looked up at a sky filled with a million stars! June 23rd is your chance to show them what they’re missing!
