June is National Great Outdoors Month. Now that school is out, it's the perfect time to pack up your gear and go on a camping trip in the great outdoors. Whether you love nearby favorites like the campgrounds at Newport News Park or First Landing State Park, or you want to plan a trip farther afield, we've got the resources to help!

According to the Great Outdoors Month website: "What started as Great Outdoors Week under President Clinton in 1998 has grown significantly under both the Bush and Obama administrations into a month-long celebration of the outdoors and all the benefits it brings."

The library carries plenty of resources that will give you ideas for how to enjoy the great outdoors with your family.
