Build A Camp Movie Screen

Movie nights at camp are a time-honored tradition.

But cramming a bunch of excited, sweaty campers into a stuffy dining hall on a warm summer night can make even the most gung-ho camp staff long for an outdoor picture show.

You don't have to take a field trip to the drive-in theater to get that cinema-under-the-stars feeling, though.

All you really need is a decent projector, a DVD player and speakers, some blackout cloth and a few other items from the hardware store.

Oh, and some elbow grease.
