I grew up in the country on 100 acres. Most of my childhood was spent outdoors. It was the 70s' and expected. I wouldn't have had it any other way. Children today need to enjoy everything nature has to offer. This event is intended to motivate them to do just that. Take a Kid Outdoors brings together children of all ages and backgrounds for a day of fun!
