Great Outdoors Colorado: Generation Wild
About the Program
Playing outside is more than a way to pass the time. It’s also an important part of a child’s development. Research has shown that children who play outside are more creative, less aggressive, less stressed, and have reduced ADHD symptoms. Plus, spending time in nature as a child helps kids grow up to appreciate the environment as adults.
To help get you started, here's a list of 100 things to do before you're 12!
