Extra: News Roundup

Here's a sampling of some Children and Nature news for Friday.

YMCA Camps.

Another group jumps on No Child Left Inside.

Paddle sports get into the act.

An interesting article from Australia.

A good story about a place called the Tom Denny Nature Camp.
As she explains, “I’m a naturalist, and I love getting kids away from electronics: TVs, videogames, and iPods.” She finds that her philosophy is best described by a simple phrase from “Last Child in the Woods” by Richard Louv: “Leave no child inside.” It is her hope that after a week of spending time with their friends, having fun outdoors, kids will come to enjoy being outside. Then perhaps, a few more kids, looking for something to do, will know where to go.
