The Let Them Be Eaten By Bears Mission – Fall Camping Tips On ABC’s Northwest Television Affiliates

The AM Northwest television producers asked me to share “Fall Camping Tips” and a good “sleep warm” trick (click here for video), getting involved in the mission of Let Them Be Eaten By Bears – A Fearless Guide To Taking Our Kids Into The Great Outdoors:

– Encourage kids to go outside all four seasons of the year (Establish a “No Child Left Inside” act – Richard Louv)

– Balance outdoor time with indoor time (bike, hike, swim, fish, explore, climb, scramble, camp, catch bugs, smell flowers, hold snakes, stare at clouds, etc.)

– Nature as a an antidote for technology addiction

– Outdoor movement to combat childhood obesity and rising ADD numbers

– Don’t be afraid to get dirty (dirt on the skin makes us happy on a chemical level)

– Play like children (because children are children)

– And for adults: It’s okay to play like children

– And the big goal: All school districts in the United States include outdoor education in their established curriculum
