June 11 is National Get Outdoors Day, a day dedicated to encouraging healthy and active fun in the outdoors. Naturally, where there's fun and outdoors, Next Adventure is close at hand.
This is the second year we were invited to attend the GO Day festivities at the Water Resources Education Center in Vancouver, WA. Over 40 booths promoting all things outside were on hand and hundreds of families came by to take part.
There was so much to do! You could go for a paddle, fish for rainbow trout, meet Ranger Rick, learn about the PCT, even shoot a bow and arrow. There were all kinds of experts on hand teaching skills and giving out information on such activities as biking, hiking, camping, horseback riding, orienteering, and backyard gardening. Next Adventure came by with a disc-golf challenge, and I'm pretty sure everybody in attendance threw at the basket at least once! At times there were so many kids throwing discs! I'm glad we brought so many discs!
Everybody had a great day and the weather was perfect. What a great day to get outdoors.
