Barriers we will combat

Youth aren't getting outdoors as much as they should for three main reasons. Our involvement in schools will give youth opportunities to get outside in order to break these barriers.

Lack of opportunity

Many students don't have anyone in their circle of family and friends who can take them to outdoor recreation spots.

Lack of finances

Testimonial:

Thank you for doing something for these kids with this non-profit organization!!
I have watched with surprise, dismay and a desire to do something as our children in schools and homes have had less and less opportunity to be out in nature and do some challenging, even semi-dangerous things!! Nature can be generous but won't bend many rules for us. It challenges but we can prepare and become able. Thank you so much for setting this up!!
