In May, MBE reviewed the children's animated feature Sid the Science Kid Backyard Campout from PBS. Now family friendly backyard campouts are front and center again because June is Great Outdoors Month by Presidential proclamation. So what better time than now to actually show our kids by example why it’s called the Great Outdoors. Throughout the coming days there will be all kinds of opportunities that reintroduce children across the U.S. to getting outside for some fresh air, old-fashioned fun and quality family time.

Now that school is out for much of the nation, kids are already spending too much time sitting indoors with their electronic devices. The program's main focal point is to change all that by helping parents to foster a healthy outdoor lifestyle that young and old can enjoy together.

National Wildlife Federation inspires Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future. Campout, which is made possible by national sponsors REI and the Coleman Company, is a signature event of NWF’s Be Out There movement whose goal is to engage 10 million new kids in outdoor play over the next three years. The Great American Backyard Campout lets kids explore a whole other world right in their own backyard at a local camp ground, or at a larger community camping event.
