Take Part in the NWF's Great American Backyard Campout
The team at Jellystone Parks is all for getting more kids playing outdoors, so we wanted to pass this message along from the National Wildlife Federation.
Spend the night under the stars with National Wildlife Federation and take your family’s first step into a lifetime filled with healthy, outdoor fun.
Did you know that today, 25% of kids play outside daily—as opposed to 75% a generation ago? Be a part of the Great American Backyard Campout and set an example for children that will get them excited about the great outdoors. Join thousands of campers on June 23 (or you can choose another day that’s convenient for you). Embrace an active, healthy outdoor lifestyle—we’ll show you how.
Improving your Kids’ Health is Rewarding for Them…….and for You!
You have the option to help support NWF’s work to connect kids with nature for their overall good health by raising money for our programs. You can set a personal or team fundraising goal, invite your friends and family to support your Campout, and earn the official Campout t-shirt. It’s easy—we’ll give you all the tips and tools you need to be successful plus the added reward of happier, healthier kids.
