Backyard Adventures:

One of the best things about outdoor adventures is that they don’t have to cost a lot of money! Make lifetime memories by pitching a tent in your own backyard. Make it festive with some pumpkin carving and then have dinner over an open fire. Campfire hot dogs and mountain pies (If you don’t know what a mountain pie is, get ready to thank us for this great advice and check THIS website for recipes) make for an easy and affordable dinner. And of course, you have to have s’mores for a late night camping treat.

And the best part of backyard camping adventures… you have running water and a warm home just feet away. You can talk even the most hesitant of campers into joining you!
