I received this in my e-mail tonight:

Dear Camper,

The countdown to the fourth annual Great American Backyard Campoutâ„¢ has begun!

Mark your calendars for June 28, 2008.

We hope you’ll join us again this year. In no time at all you’ll be enjoying a night of s’more-making, stargazing, and nature-watching right in your own backyard or favorite camping spot.

You can find packing lists, recipes, wildlife guides, activities, tips and more at our new Campout website:

    There you will find great new features, including:

  • Maps that show participating campsites in the U.S… and abroad!
  • A special ecard you can send to friends and family to invite them to join your campsite.
  • Message boards about campfire songs… recipes… crafts and activities… or you can start a new topic on your favorite camping-related subject.

Still need a campsite? You can book your campsite online now using the FREE reservation tool at Reserve America is the largest provider of campsite reservations in North America with more than 100,000 campsites in 48 states!

We look forward to camping with you in June!

Dang! I just figured out I’m going to be on vacation that day. Oh well maybe I’ll celebrate it the week before.

We used to do this as kids – I didn’t know someone had made an event of it – thanks for the link!
