Campbell Backyard Campout

The Campbell Recreation team understands that Memorial Day Weekend is usually jam-packed with extra fun plans. This year our plans have changed a little, so let’s all get together and have a virtual campout from our own backyards or living rooms!

Join the City of Campbell Recreation this weekend for a Campbell Backyard Campout! Set up a tent in the backyard, build a pillow fort in the living room, or lay out sleeping bags and let’s all "sleep under the stars". Check back here or visit Campbell’s Facebook Event page for family "camping" activities, games, an amazing s’mores recipe, and more. Let’s celebrate together as a community!

Here’s how it works:
1) Clear out some space in your backyard or home to set up a tent, build a pillow fort, or just lay out sleeping bags/bedding to “sleep under the stars”
2) Check our Facebook Event Page for fun indoor and outdoor camping activities and ideas leading up to the night!
3) On May 23rd snap a pic of your camping set up and share with us on Facebook! Make sure to post on the event page or add #campbellcampout to your photo description.
4) Keep checking the event page on May 23rd and 24th as we will post more interactive fun to do that night and morning!
