The First Adventure

OAC was founded by a local school teacher who organized a kayak trip for his students and realized how important it is for young people in urban communities to see the beauty of nature. From that ‘first adventure’ OAC was born and the lives of so many local urban teens have been forever changed.

Why Spending Time in Nature is Important

Our minds and bodies need to spend time in nature. However most of us lead lives that pull us indoors. Young people need to experience the outdoors now more than ever. The health and wellness benefits of outdoor recreation and exercise are widely documented. New studies also clearly indicate the positive social-emotional, economic, and environmental impact that occurs when young people spend time in nature.
