Why do we want to get kids outside? 


There are many great reasons to encourage kids to head outside and explore the natural environment.  Exciting outdoor recreation gets kids off the couch and moving again, something we can all use a little more of these days.  Hands-on outdoor education is also one sure-fire way to tap into young students' natural curiosity and enthusiasm to learn.  With a little guidance from adult mentors these inspring outdoor experiences can help build the next generation of conservation-minded citizens!


With this in mind, our programs at Bogus Basin strive to

1) Encourage active lifestyles through exciting outdoor recreation

2) Inspire an appreciation for nature through direct experience

3) Provide relevant and engaging hands-on science education for local students

4) Serve all youth, especially underserved populations

5) Build community by connecting youth with local adult role models
