Did you know
 
  • Kids are on screens 7 - 9 hours a day!
  • Many kids are overweight, anxious, depressed & even suicidal.
  • 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.
  • The average American is poorly prepared for life success, not having mentors who instill good habits or a framework for success at an early age. We build a foundation for success, instilling confidence, building self esteem & resiliency, teaching good communication skills, the importance of a routine, and even de-mystifying money management, showing kids how to to build the foundation for life success there as well.

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.

I was interested in everything he talked about and would like him to come back.
