The Great American Backyard Campout is this Saturday, June 22.  Families all across the country will head outside for a little old-fashioned camping fun (you can too – find out how right here).

To get into the spirit, I made camping the theme my monthly appearance on the Today Show.  I brought on a few animals that you might see or hear (yes, I did my best impression of a gray treefrog call) while you’re camping out this weekend.

I also had a special camping-themed challenge in store for Kathie Lee and Hoda.  Watch the segment to see what I made them do.  It’s pretty hysterical.  Camping experts they might not be, but they are certainly good sports.
