“The average kid spends 40 minutes a week outside and 70 hours a week in front of a screen.

Traditionally the father was the mentor into outdoor activities and with over 40% of our kids without a father at home and up to 70% in some communities, kids are not going outdoors to explore.

Boys especially need to spend time outdoors being mentored in so many of the things their hearts long for. John Eldredge says in his book Wild at Heart, “Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.” That is the heart of a boy!

We have embraced the National Hunting and Fishing day event as a way to offer kids a chance to explore outdoor activities and then help moms and dads find places and activities they can plug the kids into.

Kids Outdoor Zone (KOZ) is an outdoor adventure ministry based in churches around the country. Any church can train and bring the program into their church and community. To find a church in your area or for more information, http://www.kidsoutdoorzone.com/ or call 512-292-1113, #kidsoutdoorzone.” – ‘TJ Greaney’ – chair for the Kids Outdoor Zone National Hunting and Fishing Day event with Mayor Alan McGraw chair of the Round Rock Family Campout.
