Backyard Campout

Host your own backyard adventure!

You don’t have to travel to have an awesome campout. You and the kiddos can have a blast right in your own backyard!

Carrying your gear from your garage to the backyard is as easy as it gets! Gather your family, huddle around the campfire, and enjoy a splendid spring evening. Grill fish and fresh veggies over the campfire for dinner, then have s’mores and hot cocoa for dessert. Add a string of twinkling lights for an extra dose of ambiance.

While we previously staged this camping shoot for the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of NEST Magazine, your own campout certainly doesn’t need to be this stylish! Grab some blankets and pillows and call it good.

If you were already in the market for camping supplies, here’s some gear to make your mini-excursions more fun!
