Fresh Air Kids Switzerland - Our Mission
Updated: Jul 1, 2021
We want you to know that we are more than a family that hikes.
We aim to be so much more than intrepid travelers that show - off pretty places.
We have witnessed the power of the natural world not only in our own lives, but in the lives of our children and friends. It is intensely beautiful and powerful!
Because of that understanding, we need you to know that we are on a mission.
Our Mission is this: We are on a BIG mission to start an outdoor revolution that educates and connects as many families as possible to the natural world. By breaking down the barriers to spending quality time outside, we hope to inspire, motivate and encourage more outdoor adventure in the lives of families across the globe. Why? By hiking endless kilometers with our family, we have realized that nature has a profound impact on our health and well-being. We are better as a unit when we are immersed in nature. We witness our children blossom under a glowing sun, grow through grit as they endure alpine trails and learn as they encounter nature in unspoiled landscapes. We believe with every ounce of our beings that because we are of nature, we must retreat to nature as often as possible to live fully aware and happy, healthy lives. Join Us: It is perfectly okay if you don’t know where to start. Our awakening started when we started over. Once we began to rebuild our lives in Switzerland, we were immediately drawn to the mountains. The mountains ignited a love in us that was far too strong to abandon once our children were born. We longed to share that love and that sense of wonder with the new people in our lives. So, we made a simple vow – we must continue to do what brought us joy. We strapped our children on our backs and got going. We started small, we learned the lessons and through those experiences, together, we wrote our books, Fresh Air Kids Switzerland and Fresh Air Kids Switzerland - Hikes to Huts.
