Since the birth of the digital age, kids are spending less and less time outdoors, and more and more time inside on their tablets, phones and computers. This is having a huge impact on both their health and their development as individuals. Vango recognise how vitally important it is that kids and young adults spend time outdoors; getting lost in nature, participating in outdoor activities and camping out in the great wide open are among some of the most cherished experiences you can have growing up. The Scout Association – an organisation that shares this sentiment – is one of Vango’s closest partners. Together, it’s our aim to help encourage children to get outdoors and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Founded in 1907 by Robert Baden Powell, The Scout Association is the largest mixed youth organisation in the UK. The Scouts are committed to providing life-changing adventures for young people aged 6 to 25, with the aim of helping them reach their full potential. Each year they provide outdoor activities and camping opportunities to 435,000 children and young adults throughout the UK. Being active in the outdoors environment offers children many benefits including improved fitness, self-esteem and personal development.
