Camping trips are all about getting rid of the distractions of everyday life, so make sure that you extend this philosophy to a backyard camping trip as well. Although you're right outside your home, make sure to emphasize that camping is about inventing ways to have fun that aren't focused on electronics, cell phones, laptops or iPods. Think of fun and creative games and activities that don't involve technology. The imagination of your friends and family might surprise you.
