What is Outside7B?

Outside7B is based upon years of research showing that time spent outside has dramatic benefits for mental and physical health.  The goal of Outside7B is to encourage youth and families to explore the outdoor recreation opportunities in our area, and to discover the impact time in nature can have on individuals and families. Outside7B provides a range of activities for all ages and ability levels including a nature-focused summer camp and out-of-school events, a hiking series, StoryWalks, and snowshoeing scavenger hunts. All of Outside7B’s programs are designed to not only get you outside to benefit your health, but are also fun and educational.
