Outdoor Programs

Because children and families ought to be in touch with Nature

Video games and tablets may seem fun, but let’s see why spending time in Nature is important

It builds confidence. There are infinite ways of outdoors interactions, from the backyard and the park to the local hiking trail or the lake. Allowing children to choose how to treat and respect nature means that they have the power to control their own actions. 

It promotes creativity and imagination. The unstructured style of playing in nature allows children to interact substantially with their environment. They can think more freely, plan their own activities and approach the world in inventive ways.

It provides a different stimulation. Nature may seem less encouraging than a violent video game, but in fact it triggers all of our sensations -we can see, listen, smell and touch open air environments. As young people spend their lives less and less in a natural environment, their senses narrow down, and this reduces the wealth of human experience.

Reduces stress and fatigue. According to the Attention Rehabilitation Theory, urban environments require what is called directional attention, which forces us to ignore distractions and exhaust our brain. In natural environments, we apply an effortless type of attention known as soft charm that creates feelings of pleasure rather than fatigue.
