All parents are empowered as their child’s most important teacher; all families nurture our planet; and all kids learn how to thrive in our dynamic world.
Help kids and families learn together through well-designed, outdoor play experiences.
We share an unwavering commitment to make a lasting, positive impact in the lives of children and families.
We create inclusive spaces in which every person is celebrated, valued, connected and encouraged to flourish.

Fulfilling our mission to help all families raise healthy, confident, and capable kids through enriching outdoor experiences will take time. We remain dedicated, ready to work, listen and learn in order to improve. We look forward to updating our community as we make progress and learn along the way. Every member of our community plays a role, and we hope you will join us in this work!
