Have you and your kids tried geocaching? We’re excited to share with you an easy and extra fun way to embark on your first family geocaching treasure hunt and how you can get your children’s school involved thanks to Envirokidz and their new free Ecokeepers™ program.
Envirokidz is more than a delicious and healthy line of food for kids. It’s a brand with a mission to both feed children delicious organic food and to feed positive change in young minds. We’re honored to be working with them to spread this message.
Their new Ecokeepers™ program is about getting kids outside and discovering the world around them to develop a life-long relationship with nature.
In our busy modern lives, most kids are not spending enough time playing outside.
Yet, studies show that kids who spend time outdoors are:
- happier and less stressed
- see a boost in classroom performance
- have enhanced problem-solving skills and imagination
- are leaner
- can experience a reduction in ADHD symptoms, and
- better understand the need to nurture nature and how animals, plants and people are tightly connected
As parents, most of us can use some extra help inspiring and encouraging our kids to spend more time outdoors.
So I’m thrilled about this new ecokeepers program.
The EnviroKidz Ecokeepers™ program is free for camps and schools and provides tools and supplies to coordinate an educational geocaching activity for a group of children.
This interactive explorer activity harnesses kids’ natural curiosity and sense of discovery.
Watch this video to learn more…
Talk to your children’s school or camp group and then you can bring ecokeepers into your school, local camp or home… for FREE.
The Ecokeepers™ program blends the modern day, GPS enabled treasure hunt of geocaching with the traditional explorer guidebook to document notes and pictures.

We received a sample class kit to see first hand what it’s all about.
