Organizers hope the event will bring people together "virtually" across the nation as they gather in their church parking lot, backyard, local park, and campground to watch the web broadcast. 

Mark Hancock, CEO of Trail Life USA, said those who are unable to venture outdoors can still enjoy the experience inside by watching it on the CBN News Channel.

"We want everyone to participate in the National Backyard Concert and Campout," Hancock said. "Gather the whole family together and enjoy the evening of music, fun, teaching, and nationwide fellowship with other Troops and believers around the country. Have a camp out in the living room and watch the entire live event on the CBN News Channel."
