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!!
