With kids spending much more time on screens and technology, parents today are increasingly asking the question ‘How can I build, nurture and maintain deep relationships with my kids and build their emotional intelligence?‘” Scott says. This book is a practical guide for those new to camping and the experienced camper alike.  “Many parents know of the benefits of camping with their kids, but have a hard time articulating them or putting them into any real practice. At best the outcomes are ad-hoc.” says Scott. Having been responsible for taking over 1000 students per annum for over 8 years running Scott is in a unique position to bring insights to the possibilities of engaging with your kids using the outdoors like never before.

“ Scott Brown is a warrior in the battle to connect our kids and families with the natural environment in a manner which is intrinsically linked to individual and collective growth. His experience in this area, combined with his exceptional insight into how to strategically plan wilderness endeavours provides an outstanding and simplistic framework for parents and schools to follow. In a world where young people experience excessive levels of anxiety, dislocation and depression, Scott Brown is able to articulate a solution which can engage their body, heart and soul in the beauty of the natural world.”   Dr Steven Middleton, Head of Berwick Grammar.

“Scott Brown knows how to connect with kids in the outdoors. It comes from over 20 years of working in outdoor education and interacting with thousands of children. In this terrific book Scott has poured this experience into an easy to read, conversational style book. Simply put, if you want deeper connections with your kids and enjoy the outdoors together, this book is a MUST read!”   Darren Finkelstein, The Boat Guy
