|CAMPOUT AT HOME
Be a part of the backyard campout by pitching a tent and living outdoors for a night in the comfort of your own backyard. We can give you pointers on how you can make your backyard campout a success and help you prepare your household in the case of an emergency.
|CAMPOUT AT THE CENTER
Want to share the backyard camping experience with other families, neighbors, and friends? Reserve a campsite at the Mill Valley Community Center and prepare for an evening of campfire programming, family fun, and preparedness activities that will engage all members of your household.
Here are some fun activities and resources to make your Backyard Campout a success:
