Resources for Your Outdoors Family

I receive the occasional question about providing more information for families on my site. I’ve avoided the outdoors family topic for a while because I don’t have children of my own. Heck, I haven’t even adventured with my dog yet.

There are however some great adventure parents sharing information on the Internet. Here are some of my favorites in no particular order:

 

1. Michael Lanza – The Big Outside (thebigoutside.com)

The former Northwest editor for Backpacker Magazine shares stories and advice on great outdoor adventures, including adventures that are suitable for families.

 

2. Outdoor Families Magazine (outdoorfamiliesonline.com) and Mommy Hiker (mommyhiker.com)

Two projects from founder Jennifer Fontaine share inspiration and motivation for parents to get outside with their kids on adventures all over the globe.

 

3. Sarah Carty and Dwane Roberge – Campfires and Kids (campfiresandkids.com)

Sarah and Dwane write and share photos about last year’s epic canoe trip with their kids as well as the day-to-day ups and downs of nurturing wilderness children.

 

4. Raising Kids Wild (raisingkidswild.com)

This Vitamin N Challenge winner writes about spending time outside with her kids hiking, camping, and geocaching.

 

5. Gayle and Family at Sometimes Eventful (sometimeseventful.ca)

Gayle – founder of the #wegetoutside Twitter chat and the Sometimes Eventful website – writes about stuff, outdoors stuff to be precise. Follow her adventures with her family including the latest addition, Buddy.
