Great American Backyard Campout in Briar Chapel

Last night, thousands of families set up a tent in the backyard or a local park to celebrate life in the great outdoors.

The Great American Backyard Campout is sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation. It is an important part of the organization’s “Be Out There” campaign, which is dedicated to getting children outside so they can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. Camping out in the backyard is also a wonderful opportunity to observe and learn about the wildlife that surrounds us every day.

Briar Chapel's activity director organized a great campout for residents, complete with a storyteller, marshmallows for roasting, and fun games!
