If you love getting out and about and enjoying yourself, National Great Outdoors Month is the perfect month for you! It’s a great opportunity to encourage children in the importance of outside play and how getting out and about can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Getting out and about is often a free or cheap day out for families, and can be a lot of fun. It’s a great way to learn about nature and the environment and can form the basis of school projects.
Great Outdoors Week started in 1998 and expanded to National Great Outdoors Month in 2004. It aims to encourage more people to get out and enjoy the world around them, whether that be simply by exercising or taking part in volunteer programmes. There is so much the great outdoors has to offer so, this National Great Outdoors Month, why not get out there and enjoy it!
