More people are expected "pitch a tent, build a fire, set up a screen," and join in on an upcoming family get-together project.
Trail Life USA is a Christian-based organization for young boys that offers many of the same benefits as the Boy Scouts. It stepped onto the scene as the latter organization began moving away from Christian values.
Last year, spokesman Mark Hancock says Trail Life saw 10,000 families participate in its annual Backyard Concert and Campout. Families camped out in in their own backyards and met together online for a free concert.
"There's going to be the music concert, and then we have some special speakers," Hancock details about this year's event, which is scheduled for May 21st. "Dennis Rainey is joining us for a good message for families, and also Danny Huerta from Focus on the Family. And we'll have other surprise guests."
For King and Country is this year's concert headliner.
The new CDC rules eliminate mask requirements this year, which Hancock believes will help more participants feel comfortable to gather with others in their backyards, at their churches, and in parks and campgrounds across the country.
"We think it's a great opportunity for families to get together and work on their bonding together, getting together in a different way," he submits. "We really think families are going to grow in appreciation for each other and hopefully for the outdoors and really get a sense of community. It's a gathering together with thousands of other families across the country to enjoy that same content."
To help people prepare, Trail Life USA features a special section on its website that provides ideas for fun activities as well as recipes for a backyard barbecue.
