We need to give back to our children what they don’t even know they’ve lost – a connection to the natural world. The average American child spends just four to seven minutes playing outside each day. In the last few decades, childhood has literally moved indoors with kids spending more than six hours per day in front of electronic media. Simply put, the nature of childhood has changed, and there isn’t much nature left in it.
Let’s change this by unplugging and getting outdoors!A great place to start is the 7th Annual Great American Backyard Campout® on June 25, 2011.
