June 25, 2016 is the Great American Campout®, a part of National Wildlife Federation’s efforts to help inspire Americans to protect wildlife, including a campaign to get 10 million kids to spend regular outdoor time in nature.
National Wildlife Federation is America’s largest conservation organization and we work with more than 4 million members, partners and supporters in communities across the country to protect wildlife and reconnect people with nature. Today, NWF continues to be the nation’s leading advocate for wildlife and wild places.
Since 2005, thousands of people from across the nation have come together the fourth Saturday of June to participate in the Great American Backyard Campout in support of Great Outdoors Month. This annual nationwide event is designed to promote the benefits of camping as a way to connect people with nature and support NWF’s efforts to get kids outdoors.
