EVERYBODY UNDER THE SUN
Pledge to get outside this summer and you’ll receive a free Get Outside Kit, including a free sunscreen sample, an outdoor time tracker, and playlists for all your outdoor adventures. While supplies last!
Children only SPEND about 4-7 minutes outdoors every day, ON AVERAGE.
...and Americans as a whole only spend 8% of their time outside.
Time outside makes us happier, healthy humans—less stressed, more social, and more likely to connect with our communities. That's why we're creating a movement to spend more time outdoors this summer. Join us in the sunshine.

"We go to bed motivated to do something the next day. Our ethos is to wake up with purpose."
"Surfing—for me—is prioritizing my mental health. Being in the sun and in nature is very calming and good for the soul."
"Being outside and using less electronics starts out intentionally, and then eventually just becomes a habit."
Outdoor Outreach connects young people with the transformative power of the outdoors.
Since 1999, the organization has provided opportunities for more than 16,000 young people to explore their world, cultivate belonging, and discover what they’re capable of.
"The outdoors are about so much more than access and adventure. At Outdoor Outreach, our youth are sharing new experiences, building confidence, and discovering their strengths. More than that, they’re connecting with a support system of peers and mentors who believe in them and who show them that they matter."
- Annie Sawyer, Sr. Director of Development
