Oh, happy coincidences…  When I was planning out my new “Backyard Camping” stock photo series for licensing on iStockphoto, I had no idea that there was a national “Great American Backyard Campout” day sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation!

On June 23rd, thousands of families like yours will come together for a night of exploration and fun as part of Great American Backyard Campout. All you need is a taste for adventure and a desire to share the great outdoors with your children.

Even my neighbors pitched a tent Saturday night and slept outside.

Well, June 23 is coming up, so I might be a bit late for this, but we’ve got the whole summer left to camp.  The series has images appropriate for both backyard camping, with a playset and fence in the background, as well as regular camping anywhere.  The two parent family and kids participate in setting up the tent, read books, play with a digital tablet and phone and cook hotdogs and marshmallows.  The father and mother have a sing-a-long, dad tells a scary story and the kids use a telescope to look at the stars.

Check out these samples from the camping series below, and then click the link at the bottom for more ( even more to come in the next few weeks ).  Thanks!
