Enjoying Family Time, One Adventure at a Time

Life can be tough for us parents

There’s never enough time.

Not enough quality time to spend with our kids.

Not enough time to even look after ourselves properly.

Problems Parents Face

Then there are the worries we all have about our kids.

Are we spending enough time with them?

Are they getting enough exercise?

Is there a better way?

We don’t have a magic solution for all the issues we face as parents. We’re just regular working parents ourselves, not mythical ‘super parents’.

However, we have found something that has worked well for us, and for many other parents too.

here’s what has worked well for us

Spring, Summer, Autumn, & Winter we try to get out with the kids

Make it a goal in your family to try and get out at least one day each weekend

Prioritise family time over all the other ‘priorities’.

Even better, plan entire weekends away.

Take on new challenges as a family. Let your kids experience new things and learn new skills.

Getting outside regularly provides health benefits for all your family, including yourself.

Our Story

GOWTK is run by busy parents, juggling kids, jobs, schools, and all the normal stuff that goes with family life.

Shell and Gav founded GOWTK in 2011 after their frustration that there wasn’t any decent information out there for families to get out and enjoy outdoor activities with their kids.


their lives changed forever
Both Gav and Shell always loved hiking, cycling, camping, canoeing, and other water sports, but when their first child was born, they experienced the same thing that happens to every other parent: their lives changed forever.

It was important to them that their kids would experience the outdoors and what the world had to offer…..but it soon became clear that doing things with babies and small children would require a very different approach.

doing things with babies and small children would require a very different approach
Back then, there wasn’t really any internet as we know it today, and there were not many books. So, they learned by trial and error and picking up whatever information they could.

Fast forward several years and now with three children, weekend adventures, and outdoor activities were the norm. However, there was still very little information out there.

Many of Gav’s and Shell’s friends would ask them things about how to take their kids camping, where to find campsites that allow campfires, and how they can get their kids hiking.

weekend adventures and outdoor activities were the norm
So, ‘Get Out With The Kids’ was born to help other parents enjoy outdoor activities with their family.

Gav and Shell don’t consider themselves experts and are still trying new things and learning on their journey as parents. So sign-up to stay up to date with their adventures and read the articles and guides on this website so that you can get out with your family too.
