Sukkot is a celebration of the harvest season in the land of Israel. Jews would live in huts in their fields as they were harvesting their crops. We also build Sukkot to remember the huts the Jews lived in while they were wandering through the desert. There are a number of different laws on how to build a Sukkah. For example, you cannot build a Sukkah under a tree and each Sukkah must have at least 2 and a half walls. (You may, however, build a Sukkah on a camel — just build it carefully!!!)
