{Be Out There} Go Camping…In Your Backyard!

by Leighann on June 24, 2010

Our love of the outdoors led me to become a National Wildlife Federation’s Be Out There Founding Mother. We recently took the challenge to get outdoors every day for a week for at least one hour. Then I wrote about our camping experiences since diagnosis.

National Wildlife Federation wants to get you camping with the Great American Backyard Campout on Saturday, June 26 in your own backyard!

Since we moved last week and I have absolutely no idea where our tent ended up, we may improvise and have a cookout, complete with s’mores.

Will you pledge to get outdoors and camp with the kids in your backyard on June 26th?

How do you balance diabetes and camping?

What’s your favorite camping snack and how many carbs does it have?

Do you have a funny (or not-so-funny) diabetes camping story?

I don’t have a child with diabetes, but I do have a special needs teen. It will be interesting to see if he’s even game and, if so, for how long. I’m guessing until the first bug crawls in the tent with us! I don’t know…I may be out of the tent with him depending on how big the bug actually is 🙂
