OutGrown: Where Community and Nature Meet

At OutGrown, we believe in the transformative power of community and the great outdoors. Our mission is to bring families together, fostering connections with nature and each other. Through our innovative programs – Hike it Baby, Turn the Blues Green, and Bring it Outside – we offer diverse, inclusive experiences that resonate with families from all walks of life.

Our groundbreaking program, "Turn the Blues Green," addresses maternal mental health with innovative strategies. It serves as a dynamic tool for new parents, offering vital support in navigating the challenges of early parenthood. This program aims to alleviate the isolation frequently experienced by new parents, fostering a sense of community and connecting them to the natural world from the outset. "Turn the Blues Green" is about nurturing mental well-being and building strong, lasting bonds with nature and fellow parents.

"Bring it Outside" is designed to meet families exactly where they are in their journey, supporting diverse ways to engage with the outdoors. This program is more than just activities; it's a year-round initiative offering tools, workshops, and events tailored to family needs. Whether it's through developing innovative outdoor activities or hosting engaging workshops, "Bring it Outside" is dedicated to making nature accessible and enjoyable for all families, fostering a lifelong connection with the outdoors.

 

"Hike it Baby" is a diverse and inclusive community initiative, a core part of OutGrown. This program redefines 'hiking' to encompass a broad spectrum of activities – from playground gatherings and urban walks to traditional trail hikes. Designed to engage all families, our events are led by specially trained hosts who focus on creating a welcoming, inclusive environment. This initiative is committed to fostering community connections and encouraging outdoor exploration for families of all backgrounds.
