Gearing up for backyard camping... and a $500 Walmart gift card GIVEAWAY

Contest closed - winner - Amy Stackhouse

I was recently given the opportunity to gear up for a backyard camping adventure at Walmart. My boys had a wonderful time choosing the supplies we needed/ they wanted. We got a new 8 person tent (big enough for our family of 5), games to play, a movie to watch under the stars, supplies for s'mores, and a variety of awesome Energizer® lighting solutions.



Camping is a fantastic way to do something fun as a family -- and you don't even have to leave home! My boys are extremely excited to go on our camping adventure, and I am looking forward to sharing the details of our backyard "staycation" soon. 

In the meantime, do you want a chance to win a $500 Walmart giftcard? You can use it to buy all the camping supplies you need for your own summer camping trip. Walmart has everything you need for your camping adventure at everyday low prices.

Don't forget to stock up on Energizer® flashlights and lighting solutions to keep your family safe in the dark. We purchased a wonderful Energizer® lantern and Energizer® Vision Headlights for every member of our family. 



We also stocked up on Energizer® Max® and Engergizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries. (Check out Energizer.ca for all the info you need to know about lanterns, flashlights and long-lasting batteries.) 47% of Canadian campers agree that most camping essentials require batteries, so be sure to stock up on reliable ones.

To enter to WIN a $500 Walmart giftcard, all you need to do is leave me a comment below letting me know the first camping item you will buy with your gift card if you win. (Make sure you are logged in, or leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win.) Note: This contest is open to Canadians only, and the contest closes on July 26, 2016.

Good luck with the contest, and come back soon to read all about our backyard camping adventure!

  85. The first camping item I would purchase would be sleeping bags for my little boys. They are four and six years old and they've been using adult sleeping bags. I think they'd be more comfortable and warm in a kid-sized bag! I would also love to get us each an Energizer Vision Headlight. They'd be really helpful for overnight bathroom breaks and for navigating the campsite! We're hoping to visit Boylston Provincial Park in Guysborough with the boys this summer. My husband and I went in June and it was so beautiful!

    If I won the first thing I would LOVE to buy would be a 6 people tent, kinda need a big tent with 4 kids. This would be such an awesome win because I was just saying to the kids yesterday how all they want to do is sit indoors and watch TV or play on the tablets...I want to have a family vacation where its just nature,fresh air, and my kids, I did it as a kid and I loved it,and Im certain once I got my kids out there they would love it to. And I use the word vacation because we never get to go anywhere and I really wouldn't care where we pitched up the tent as long as theres no TV and I have my kids...I can't even remember the last time I sat around a camp fire! Thank you so much for the chance :)

    ReplyDelete

  172. I would buy the engergizer vision headbands for all family members. .They would be so great when camping especially when returning to your camp site after visiting friends in the dark or when out for an evening walk to light the way .... Also I would buy chairs to use for around the campfire and treats for sharing. Winning would be great!

  174. The first thing I would purchase is a tent. I have no camping supplies at all so with Walmart pricing and sales the balance would take care of everything I need to get started. Perfect for starting out with the grandchildren! samjustme@gmail.com
