OUTWARD BREAK DAY ONE

YOUR GOAL: Plan a route to a new outdoor area and go for a walk/hike. Watch the video below to hear some tips from your instructors Jen & Mike. You can also easily re-download the Outward Break Guide below.

Use a paper map (whaaat?), Google, or other mapping app to find a nearby park or greenspace you’ve never been to before. (Here’s the DPR Parks Map)

  • Research the most easily accessible way to get there (walk, bike, train, etc), then plan your route
  • Once you have your route planned, write down some key tips to help keep you going the right way. (Ex. 3 blocks then turn L, McDonalds on the corner)
  • Decide what you want to do once you get there...and get your parents on board for the next part!

Make time for you and your OB Explorer (invite friends too, if you can) to trailblaze your way to the new greenspace together. What new things can YOU discover along the way?

Use your new navigation skills to find a hiking trail nearby that you and your family/friends can explore sometime this Spring. Then, plan a date to do it—and mark it down on the calendar so you don’t forget!

What was something you did today that you’re super proud of? How can you apply that to tomorrow’s challenge?
