#2 Camping (in back yard)
It doesn’t have to be in the back yard, if you have a car you may be able to get out of town for a few days and enjoy a fully fledged trip including camping, cooking, hikes, kayaking, outdoor fires and so forth. But as soon as you enter that realm the costs start to mount up (even camping can be expensive sometimes).

Here is a great resource for camping in your backyard. With ideas like tent games and a camping journal.
