Escaping into nature provides a series of family-friendly activities that help children to develop important skills that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives. And living in a region that makes it easy to explore wooded areas gives families the opportunity to visit remote places, campsites and recreational parks. These places are essential for kids, especially in the age of technology, as we humans tend to distance ourselves from nature, often overlooking the role that Mother Nature plays in our daily lives - especially if we live in high-rise buildings, skyscrapers or big cities.
