First up this week, an exciting announcement from our founder about the launch of CAMPERKIDS.org:
CAMPERKIDS.org was born out of a need for an online site to find great info about involving our kids in the great outdoors. My wife and I are quite active and take our kids along with us biking, climbing, canoing, etc… And, as we traveled and looked for info online, we just weren’t finding it! There are so many really engaged families out there who take their kids out into the wild, and it seemed obvious that there should be some sort of website/community for us to all share our collective knowledge and experience. So, we launched CAMPERKIDS.org, an organization connecting Families and the Great Outdoors!
CAMPERKIDS is a member-driven online community for info on everything from which trails are great, to where to stay, to where to eat… Our purpose is to 1.) connect active families, 2.) provide great info on outdoor activities, and 3.) promote a sense of conservation in our kids. As such, CAMPERKIDS includes info on everything from climbing and mountain biking, to camping, kayaking and even off-the-beaten-path swimming holes…
The more members CAMPERKIDS.org has, the more great info at your disposal. So, join up! Spread the word! And contribute your knowledge and experience to our community. Thanks so much, and happy adventures!
