5 Outdoor Skills for Summer Adventures
The warm summer weather is approaching and families are organizing their outdoor gear and getting ready to hit the hiking trails and campgrounds. As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across our globe, families are finding ways to get creative with their outdoor adventure options. Camping, hiking, and road trips will be a popular choice for many this summer. As you begin to dust off your old camping gear and organize some of your equipment, it is also a good time to update the outdoor skills checklist as well. Just like any wilderness outing, common injuries happen commonly and there is always a chance of spending the unexpected night out…so best to be prepared!
5 Outdoor Skills for children and teens:
Here is the list of skills we recommend reviewing before embarking on your journeys this summer:
