About Us

Our family values quality time together and we enjoy spending time outside. Because it’s fun to get outside with others, we began inviting people to join us on our adventures. We think everyone can benefit from time with others and from being outside, even if it’s in our own backyards.

Our Story

The initial idea for this community started with a single gal with a grant who wanted to take families camping in 2012 and had lots of help from a team of volunteers!

Currently, she gets to run North Texas Kids Outside (NTKO) with her own family.

Above all, we are volunteers and lead this group because we believe quality time and being outside is important. Learn more about the family behind NTKO (coming soon).
