Why we do what we do
Kids Outdoors was started as I watched my daughter grow in a very different world that I grew up in as a child. My childhood was spent outside, hiding in the woods, inventing games and generally getting muddy!
As a parent I was increasing concerned that children spend more time indoors, interacting with technology, rather than playing outside in the fresh air and socialising with each other. That’s where the idea of Kids Outdoors came from and has developed into what it is today.
After working with several outdoor children’s and wildlife charities and a love of anything outdoors, I wanted to share my knowledge and passion with the children. I hope the children will develop a connection with the natural world and a love of the outdoors that stays with them for life!
