At the heart of every camp is a fire. In your own backyard, a fire pit makes it easy and keeps it contained (event planner Tara Guérard likes the Red Ember Cast Iron Fire Pit, $140; hayneedle.com). Spread gravel beneath your fire pit to create a barrier between it and any flammable debris. If you choose to light an in-ground fire, check with your town’s public safety office first to confirm local regulations. To create extra seating, contact a nearby tree-removal company to get stumps to use as stools. Old-school games, like cornhole, horseshoes, and lawn dice, never fail to please. You can also look for oversize outdoor versions of Jenga or dominoes.
