The Kevin Cameron
Get Outside Fund
If you know Kevin Cameron, you know he was an outdoorsman. From camping and fishing to hiking, boating, and whitewater rafting, Kevin loved to spend as much time outdoors as he could. Kevin instilled a love of the outdoors in his children as soon as they were old enough to carry a backpack or get behind a boat. That love grew as his children grew, and over the years Kevin guided outdoor excursions of all types for his kids, their friends, friends of friends, and many others.
If you know Kevin Cameron, and you love the outdoors, chances are that love was inspired by Kevin.
To honor Kevin’s legacy and his passion for sharing the outdoors with others, specifically the outdoors of Central and Southern Utah, Kevin’s family and friends set up the Kevin Cameron Get Outside Fund, in conjunction with Get Outside Utah.
Get Outside is a nonprofit organization designed to promote a culture of outdoor recreation and a healthy lifestyle in Southern Utah. Its primary vision is for both youth and adults to engage in outdoor recreation in order to improve physical and mental health, move out of their comfort zones, and challenge their perceived abilities while creating opportunities to serve in their communities.
Give today to help youth get outside
Who We Are
We are promoters of physical and mental well-being who interrupt sedentary lifestyles through engagement with the great outdoors.
What We Do
Get Outside organizes high school clubs in Southern Utah geared toward helping students spend more time in the outdoors. We provide students scheduled and guided outdoor activities, transportation, and easy access to outdoor equipment.
Barriers We Will Combat
Youth aren’t getting outdoors as much as they should for three main reasons. Our involvement in schools will give youth opportunities to get outside in order to break these barriers.
Lack of Opportunity
Many students don’t have anyone in their circle of family and friends who can take them to outdoor recreation spots.
Lack of Finances
Many students do not have access to the money required to acquire the gear necessary to effectively engage with the outdoors.
Lack of Education
Many students lack the knowledge and training necessary to safely participate in outdoor activities.
Thank you for doing something for these kids with this non-profit organization!! I have watched with surprise, dismay and a desire to do something as our children in schools and homes have had less and less opportunity to be out in nature and do some challenging, even semi-dangerous things!! Nature can be generous but won’t bend many rules for us. It challenges but we can prepare and become able. Thank you so much for setting this up!!
