How to Camp out in your Backyard

The sounds of crickets as you lay your head on the pillow after a full day of adventure. The stars that twinkle as you lay to look up at the dark moonlit night sky. The smell of s’mores as you roast them over a campfire. These are things that could describe the perfect camping trip.


Even though summer is almost over, it isn’t too late to experience the sights and sounds of a memorable camping trip! If you are short on time or funds and aren’t able to get out to a camping site, camping in your backyard could be an option. With a little creativity, camping in your backyard can be just as fun!


Experience the outdoors by turning your backyard into your own personal campsite using these tips for an unforgettable bonding experience with your family. 


Pitch a Tent

Set up camp by pitching a tent just as if you were camping elsewhere. Bring all the comfy blankets and pillows for a peaceful night's sleep outside. Store all your hygiene products in a tote bag and take them outside with you to your tent for the full camping experience. 


Set up a campfire

Getting a firestone or portable fire pit will do the trick! There is nothing like the smell of campfire to add to the camping experience. 


Bring out the S’mores!

What is a camping trip without s’mores! The gooey texture of the marshmallow as it melts over the flame of the campfire is entertaining to say the least. Whip out the graham crackers, chocolate bars, and marshmallows and enjoy some s’mores. Pro tip: Have a portable trash can to throw away all the wrappings to keep things nice and tidy 


Cook your meals over the Firepit

Bag all of your food in a Krush tote bag for those hamburgers and hotdogs. If you want to get creative, add some fire-roasted veggies to go with your hamburgers and hotdogs. 


Play Outdoor Games

Bring out all the outdoor games! Corhole, anyone? Playing some games outside, away from all technology and devices is probably the most bonding activity you can do with your friends and family. Here are some games you could play to get the bonding started:


  • Corhole
  • Frisbee
  • Badminton
  • Capture the Flag
  • Flag Football
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Jump Rope
  • Musical Chairs

Tell Funny Stories around the Campfire

After the fun and games, sit around the campfire and have everyone tell a funny story. Tell the funny story of how you and your significant other met. Create a funny skit to perform in front of everybody. Get the laughter going for some unforgettable moments.



The stars seem to twinkle brighter when you set still and just gaze upon them. Grab a drink from your cooler and reminisce on the fun activities of the day or ponder the things of life. Either way, don’t miss on the stargazing experience.
