1. Set Up A Tent
Nothing says “camping” like a tent! For a truly authentic way to feel like you’ve packed up and left town, set up a tent for your night “away”. Don’t worry if you don’t own a tent! As long as weather is clear, you can always set up a blanket fort instead. My brother and I used to do this all the time growing up and we turned out just fine (or, at least one of us did). If you don’t mind spending just a little bit of money, you can also find some affordable tents at sporting goods stores such as Scheels.
