Children today spend less time outdoors than any generation in human history. Yet we know that a daily dose of nature makes kids smarter, more curious and creative. It’s simple: Kids need more nature! We think the show Scout & the Gumboot Kids is an excellent teaching tool for families, encouraging them to spend more time outdoors connecting with nature.

Scout & the Gumboot Kids is creating a “new normal” for an entire generation. This pioneering series transports young children into the practice of mindfulness and the magic of nature. The values of gratitude, appreciation and respect will stay with young viewers throughout a lifetime, creating a world we all want to live in.
