Backyard camping is fun for kids! Camping in the backyard means that you can keep an eye on them and know they are safe just outside your door. Kids need their own space. Give them a teepee or tent of their very own. Add outdoor toys, like play camping gear and kid flashlights, and your children and their friends can camp out in the backyard where you can keep an eye on them.
