Between Netflix, iPods and MineCraft, outdoor time is fighting a tough battle with screen time for our kids attention. But connecting kids with the great outdoors is now a whole lot easier since Nature's Track's Forest Play sprouted roots in Canmore. Offering weekly outdoor adventures for the 4 to 14-year-old set, this summer camp and after-school program thrusts kids back into the natural world and teaches them how to navigate the landscape. The focus is child-led, building on our kid's sense of direction and independence. That means helicopter parents will have to take a chill pill because kids learn proper knife handling skills, how to start a fire and most importantly, how to feel safe and comfortable in the woods.
