OUR STORY

THE OUTDOOR KID TEAM

Hi, I'm Ceana and this is my son Finn.

I grew up in Tongariro National Park with skiing on the school curriculum and summers spent wandering through beech forests.

Pre-kiddo, most weekends were spent adventuring but when Finn arrived everything came to a grinding halt. Everything needed to get flatter and shorter. With cabin fever and baby blues, I desperately needed to get outdoors and soak up some fresh air.

But, I really struggled to find buggy-friendly walks online. Famously ending up knee deep in a murky lake on a “buggy-friendly” trail. It was then that I knew there must be a better way to share adventures. 

So I started Outdoor Kid to help other families find age suitable adventures, and hopefully encourage kids to ditch the devices and connect to nature.

I hope you’ll find some awesome adventures with your littler explorers.
