National Get Outdoors Day

This Saturday, June 14th, is National Get Outdoors Day and June is National Get Outdoors Month. Girl Scouts have made a patch to celebrate this day and you can find it in their shop online.


There is a website dedicated to this day with news, locations (not required), and ways to get involved (host an event!) or find them on facebook.


Need ideas on ways to get outside? Here are a few of my favorites:


  • Read in a hammock or floating on a raft.
  • Take photos of yourself, your friends, your family, and your environment.
  • Create something for your yard.
  • Bury a time capsule.
  • Go for a nature walk/scavenger hunt.
  • Learn a new game
  • Have a water Olympics.
  • Go Geocaching.
  • Go Letterboxing.
  • Have a picnic at a local park.
  • Make a treasure hunt for your friends.
  • Camp!
  • Cloud watch.
  • Work on outdoor badges.
  • Build a sandcastle.
  • Do something for your community.
  • Get down and dirty with a magnifying glass.
What things will you do?
