Play outside

I want to thank Big Tent RV and Campsite and Good Nature Farms for their ongoing support of Nature Camps for Children throughout 2014.

I want to publicly thank Big Tent RV and Campsite and Good Nature Farms for their ongoing support of Nature Camps for Children throughout 2014.

Both Larry Adams and Joanne Sales have shown their positive commitment in encouraging children to play outdoors in nature more often.

Both myself and the campers are grateful. Both facilities are clean, beautiful and ideal places for kids to play, explore, create and celebrate all that is great in the world.

We’ve all been hearing lots about the importance of children turning off the electronics indoors and heading outdoors.

Children who play in nature have scientifically been shown to be happier, healthier, smarter, more creative and able to cope with life challenges better than kids who spend an abundance of time indoors. David Suzuki, Robert Bateman and Richard Louv are just three of many celebrities who are leading the child-nature reunion movement.

I hope all children and their parents will vow to unplug often this winter and get outdoors. There is no bad weather when you wear the right clothing. Stock up on good outdoor clothing this winter and make the change that will change your lives.
