The fall season brings the best camping weather. The air begins to get just a little chilly at night, so you can enjoy the warm comfort of your sleeping bag or wrap a snuggly blanket around you while you look up at the stars!
Did you know the best camping spot in town is located in your own backyard?... On your trampoline! This is a fun, safe way to camp with kids without being too far from home. Here’s how you can let your kids have a night outside at their leisure in your own backyard:
- Find the Right Outdoor Tent Topper
Camping on the trampoline is a pretty neat idea! Kids get the chance to spend a night together under the stars, but they are high enough off the ground to avoid creepy crawlers and other animals that might be in your backyard. The trampoline also gives a softer support than sleeping on the hard ground all night. The mesh nature of a trampoline also allows for airflow on those warmer fall nights!
Find a tent topper that is designed to hook to your trampoline to keep your kids safe from the elements (and mosquitos)! Check out our Outback Trampoline Tent.
- Plan some Fun Camping Activities
Modify your camping traditions to your backyard specifications. If you have a fire pit in your backyard, you are all set for roasting hot dogs and making ‘smores! For those who don’t have a fire pit, fire up the grill or pack some sandwiches and lemonade to be eaten as a backyard picnic.
There are so many great outdoor games to play at night! Bring out the flashlights for a game of flashlight tag, hide around your yard to play Ghost in the Graveyard, or sit around on lawn chairs telling your favorite scary stories. Don’t forget to look up at the stars and enjoy being one with the great outdoors.
- A Fun Camping Experience with the Convenience of Your Home
Nothing is worse than getting a campsite all set up and realizing you forgot an essential – like toothpaste, a pillow, or an extra blanket! When camping on your trampoline, you can run back into your home to retrieve any forgotten items. And when nature calls, you can use the bathroom and real toilet paper without worry! At the end of the day, your kids will have access to a shower and the toiletries you have inside of your home.
Another benefit of camping on your trampoline is that your kids can always come inside if they really need to. There are a lot of reasons campers might give up on the great outdoors: maybe they are scared of sleeping outside, or maybe the weather’s not ideal. When all else fails, your house is always right there waiting for everyone.
Backyard campouts are a great way to unplug and enjoy some quality family time. It’s a great way to add some excitement to a staycation, or just an opportunity to spend more time outside that doesn’t involve a lot of planning or money.
