According to Anne Okonek, assistant district ranger, the program has evolved over the years, all while keeping the original goal in mind.
"The purpose of Kids in the Woods is to get kids unplugged - from the Xboxes, computers, from texting and their cell phones - and to get them out in the woods and reconnected with nature," she explained.
"We do all types of activities, we teach them about the woods: building and putting out fires, visiting with Smokey Bear, learning the 'leave no trace' principals, compass use, scavenger hunts to learn about bugs and frogs, snakes and trees - all kinds of learning aspects," explained Okonek. "We also try to get them physically active as well . We have kids kayaking, mountain biking, hiking - physical activities to engage them."
In addition to the activities, Okonek said the long-term goal of the program is to educate the children about the importance of conservation.
"We want the kids to understand the woods, appreciate the woods, and respect them," she said.
