#OptOutside for Healthier, Happier Kids

March 27th, 2019

Splashing across a stream, letting imagination take flight on the wings of a bird and the excitement of navigating a new trail are some magical moments in childhood that resonate through the years, not just as memories but as life lessons.

Kids who spend time outdoors, or #OptOutside, aren’t just having fun getting dirty. Time outdoors has been shown to reduce childhood depression and stress, build kids’ confidence and even improve performance in school.

Nature isn’t a faraway place you take your kids to visit on vacation. CWF offers children’s summer programs right here in New Jersey that will help your kids ignite a life-long love of nature and improve their quality of life, now and in the future.
