gear rentals for camping with kids

Guess what?!

This Sunday, July 26th, is National Parents Day!

That’s right, it’s time to celebrate both parents at once! According to the National Parents Day website, “National Parents Day is annually celebrated, in the United States, on the fourth Sunday in July.  Similar to a combination of Father’s Day and Mother’s Day, National Parents Day is a day to honor your parents. show appreciation to them and to celebrate family.”

Apparently National Parents Day was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into Law for “recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.”  The bill was introduced by Republican Senator Trent Lott.

The site offers ideas to celebrate such as: Call up your parents, or reminisce about the good time with them. Post on social media using #NationalParentsDay to encourage others to join in paying it forward.

These ideas are great, but we think Kid President has some even better ones (although his message is about Moms, we figure a lot of it could be applied to you Dads as well).

Even better – why not plan a family camping weekend with Outdoors Geek? We can help set you up with all the gear you’ll need, ideas of where to camp, what types of food to pack, all without having to ask your parents for help!family camping in the Eastern Sierra's, California.
