They are Waiting for You!

Our current generation of youth have grown up with media at their fingertips. Their easy-access, ready-on-demand electronic world has some advantages, yet it is also leaving our youth with gaps in their natural understanding, exploration and discovery.

We created this world for them and it’s also our responsibility to teach exploration and discovery to our youth. You don’t need to be a teacher or expert to do this. The answer is simple though, take a child with you on your next outdoor adventure. If you already do that, allow them to invite a friend. Pass it on! This does not need to be an expedition to have the intended effect, as just a simple visit to the woods, lake or beach can spark this fire. The lessons learned will be lifelong and the exploration infectous. The experiences can instill an understanding of the world around them, an appreciation of simple things, perseverance and self-reliance.

Get out and grow within! (and take a kid)
