  i havent done it with the girls yet but i remember as a kid we used to do it all the time.  we had 7 acres and we would always go set up "camp" in the little field right behind the house and pretend we were out in the woods!  it was a lot of fun!

We love to. We have a big yard and the tent is usually a permanent fixture during the summer.

my BIL is 15 and he LOVES to camp in the yard during the summer... gets him away from his sisters (they are 18 and almost 17... haha)  the tent is a permanent fixture in my MIL's yard all summer too....

We are pretty busy in the summer, but there is always a night available to camp out in the yard. We also have a fire pit so its just like camping when we fire that up.

I have seen a couple around here, but not to many. I saw a baby in the road by my house once. We walked right by it and prayed it wouldn't get us, but it just went the other way.,

We have a tent up in our back yard for most of the summer, we also have one that has only been used inside - the boys love to camp out in the familyroom a couple of times a year when it is too cold to camp in the yard.  With living on a farm, there is plenty of room to have a tent up for months on end.

There would be no place to put a tent in my living room. My son has made a fort in the living room, but that can come down when I decide I done looking at it.

We haven't done that.  My DH would rather take my son out into the woods and camp there instead.
