This event has been rescheduled to Saturday, July 25-26.
Please note - because the reschedule day is a separate event, everyone will need to re-register for the new day if you wish to attend.
We know that for many people, summer plans have changed. If you will be closer to home than you had planned, join us for our first Great American Campout!
You can join in whatever way works for you whether you are in a park campground, your backyard, or even in your living room.
To participate in the main event, the overnight on June 27-28, please register. The overnight will include live-streamed fun like: Campout Cooking Challenge, Nightwalk, and Campfire program with games and songs. Only registered participants will be given the link to our Zoom event for overnight - so please be sure to register.

What does the Campout Include?
Each week of June we will be posting activity ideas and videos to get your family outside and having fun - and ready to camp. We will include topics like: how to set up a tent, night animals, and outdoor cooking. These will be posted on our Calvert Nature Society Youtube channel and Facebook page. Announcements will be sent to registered folks first via email, so register if you plan to participate.
Live-streamed programs on the night of June 27 including things like - campfire cooking, a night walk, family-friendly campfire stories and songs. This will only be open to registered participants, so please do register.
We will end with a morning check-in on June 28 so we can share our overnight camping experiences.
This is a choose-your-own-adventure event: participate as much or as little as you want and are able to in whatever way works best for you.
Videos and activity sheets will be available on the CNS website for you to reference later, too.
We hope you will post your adventures on social media with the hashtags: #NatureatHome #CalvertCampout #CalvertNaturally
