Our Mission is twofold 
INTRODUCTIONS TO OUTDOOR PASSIONS
Our mission is to spark an interest in outdoor passions that leads to kids being outside more, setting aside their phones, enjoying and appreciating nature.

The result is lower rates of childhood obesity, diabetes, anxiety, depression & suicide.
To understand why, see our video under the next tab, titled, The Social  Media Addiction, It's Consequences & Our Solution.  This video explains the devastating impact screen time and social media is having on our children.  We are - literally - on the cutting edge of healthcare.  More and more studies are emerging today revealing the impact of screen time on kids.  Not surprisingly, there is a direct correlation to all sorts of bad stuff.

TEACHING MONEY MANAGEMENT
Our mission is to help kids understand the financial decisions they'll be faced with and how to tackle them.  Our education centers around teaching the habits of financially successful people, unlocking the keys to financial success.
did you know
THE INDOORS EPIDEMIC IS OCCURING!

Kids today spend less time outdoors than any other generation!
The average kid spends 7 hours on screens daily!  Some studies say it's closer to 9 hours!

Children are carrying this sedentary lifestyle and disconnection with nature into adulthood, creating a troubling national trend for the future of conservation, our economy, and the health & wellness of our communities.
LACK OF TRAINING IN MONEY MANAGEMENT IS AN ONGOING EPIDEMIC!
Only 16% of Americans can answer basic questions about personal finance correctly!

THE IMPACT WE'RE HAVING
George and his team were amazing teachers with a wealth of knowledge and patience that made the experience an unforgettable one for both me and my son.
- Regina Montefeltri, Single Parent

 

The kids loved George and immediately wanted him back.

He kept them fully engaged and did a great job simplifying what for many is a complicated topic.

- Christina Byther, Teacher, Westbrook High School Compass Academy

My son left the experience being the happiest I had seen him in a long while.
On the way home he commented, “This was the best day ever!”
- Simone Yamauchi, Single Parent
If it weren’t for my dad introducing me to the great outdoors, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
I don’t think there’s anything more valuable, more life changing, than getting kids off electronics and into nature.  And there’s so much here in our backyard that most kids never discover.
- Joe Capozza, Volunteer
I was interested in everything he talked about and would like him to come back.
