Wow! What a year it has been. Can you believe we are approaching the 2020 holiday season? This year has certainly looked different for everyone. It is probably safe to say that we are all feeling what a loss it has been for kids to miss out on so many of the magical parts of childhood that we remember and hold so close to our hearts. Things like summer camps, in person learning, recess, birthday parties, and trick-or-treating feel like a part of the past now.
Many of us are wondering, will we ever go back to the “norm” we remember? Some say that the kids don’t know any better, and that may be somewhat true. The Slackers team sees an opportunity to continue their mission of bringing families together to enjoy the outdoors and embrace the active lifestyle at a time where it feels as if everything else has come to a halt. It is time to adapt!
We are encouraging everyone to consider giving the gift of adventure this year to help Slackers bring the thrill of the outdoors to family homes everywhere! So, are you looking to knock this year's Christmas out of the park to end the year on a high note?
