Value of the Outdoors


You know something’s wrong when your child prefers to play indoors because that’s where all the electrical outlets are. The truth is that children today spend far too much time cooped up at home parked in front of the television or PC, so much so that their separation from the great outdoors now has a name — nature deficit disorder. Black Diamond Council is committed to reversing this indoor trend, assuring that our girl members enjoy the many benefits of outdoor time. As they experience the world around them, the girls will also grow to love and care for it. While expanding their minds and imaginations, their stress levels will fall. Many volunteers will testify to the fact that “they forget the world” while being at one of the council camps. Help your girls experience the wonder of the outdoors.
