When planning a backyard campout, think about a group of explorers who want to emulate. Consider choosing an Arctic theme, its cold outside, and shape your curtain material, bed linen and shoot campers who explore and fields in the northern regions. Or consider using a Native American theme. Instead of pitching a tent, build a patio tent with bamboo sticks or PVC pipe, strings and cotton cloth or towel. Add to the theme of learning dances of the night, songs and stories of culture and trying foods they ate and read stories they told.
Rent or buy an amateur telescope to observe the stars and moon. From the comfort of your backyard telescope, set up your tent and hope for a clear night for star gazing.
