If you ever pitched a tent in your backyard as a kid and invited your BFFs over for a night of endless laughing, gooey s'mores, and little sleep, then you know backyard camping can be a true adventure. Like the countless trips you've taken abroad, this experience can make you feel well-traveled and content with your wanderlust — despite being steps away from your door. As an adult, you'll definitely want to gather captions for backyard camping before you head outside with your good vibes and gear.
After all, you're likely an active user of social media now and will want to show your followers what you're up to. You'll want to show off the lights you set up around your tent to make it look more Instagram-worthy and the reusable picnic plates you purchased for the occasion. If you choose to deck out the trunk of your car and turn it into a cozy spot to sleep for a night, then you'll want to capture your entire process of laying out the pillows and blankets, too.
TBH, the best way to share your experience may be to utilize the "select multiple" feature and do a hefty camera roll dump. That way, you're able to share your perfectly-grilled hot dogs, fire-making skills, and the view of the treetops in your backyard all in one post. Add one of these funny, clever, or cute captions for backyard camping to that post and wrap up your "trip" in a few words.
