I love the outdoors. I’ve spent lots of time outside training for triathlons and I love camping, hiking, swimming, and going to the beach. I feel these adult activities are rooted in my time spent as a kid constantly playing outside – riding a bike, playing tag, camping, climbing trees, building forts, and exploring.
I want to share my love of the outdoors with our son as well. And thus, the idea for “Hiking Bingo” was born following a road trip and hiking excursion we took with friends last summer! We spent a lot of time hiking on that trip, but sometimes the kids just really didn't want to walk any further. One day, we created an impomptu nature scavenger hunt which re-ignited their deisre to continue exploring. I thought to myself, "I wish I had a hiking bingo card with me." Upon returning from our trip, my company, Coach M Pryor LLC, began leading a team to develop an App called Hiking Bingo.
What began as an idea for a hiking scavenger hunt app for kids has evolved into the opportunity to provide hiking and camping resources for families as a part of inspiring kids to explore the outdoors! We've begun to host local San Diego area outdoor events for kids as well.
You can receive additional hiking and camping ideas and resources as well as trail recommendations and notification of Hiking Bingo outdoor kids events by being a part of our Hiking Bingo Community thru receiving our Hiking Bingo Newsletter!
