Establish summer-fun central on your own turf. Get your happy campers started with these mess-around projects and rowdy games.
Backyard summer camp Pitch Your HQ!

To make a camp headquarters, tie three parallel clotheslines to trees or other anchor points, with the center rope hung higher to form the roof's ridgepole. Drape on flat sheets (we used three full-size), clipping them in place with clothespins. Furnish the tent with pillows and a rug -- or, as we did, just stick with decor by Mother Nature.
