5 Summer Backyard Glamping Ideas
by Parry Grimm, June 28, 2018
Ready for a vacation but just can’t afford to get away? Consider a staycation where you go glamping in the backyard! Whether you are getting away for just one night or considering a longer retreat, you can still relax in comfort and style outdoors. Here are some themed glamping ideas for the whole family:
Girls’ night out. Make your daughter’s next sleepover more than a slumber party when you move it outdoors! A tent with sleeping bags and plenty of pillows will make guests feel cozy. Popcorn is the perfect glamping snack, and a s’mores and candy buffet will keep guests busy. Make sure your happy glampers rise and shine the next morning to breakfast over the fire.
Boys’ night out. Boys love to explore, so try a backyard scavenger hunt to keep them busy. Be sure to keep things bright in the dark woods with mini flashlights. After dinner, gather around for a less traditional campfire – an outdoor movie screen with a kid-friendly movie.
Family overnight. For old-fashioned family fun, put away the video games and pitch a tent in your backyard for a night of activities under the stars. Take a hike around the neighborhood, set up your backyard campsite, fire up the grill and stargaze. Roast some s’mores in the kitchen or over an open campfire, and don’t forget the ghost stories!
Ladies’ night. Pack your bag and grab your girlfriends! A ladies’ night out means sitting under the stars, sipping champagne and catching up on life. For a healthy snack, create a make-your-own-trail-mix bar. Specialty toppings such as dark chocolate, peanut butter cups and striped cookies make s’mores extraordinary.
Couples retreat. Date night doesn’t have to involve lot of expense. Turn your backyard shed into a glamping shed! Clear out everything in the shed, sweep it out and blow up an air mattress. Pile on the soft blankets and fluffy pillows, add candles and lanterns for lighting, and bring along the ingredients for a simple campfire meal. Pop the bubbly, start a fire and enjoy your romantic glamping trip for two!
