Life can be tough as a parent.
Balancing busy family life with the demands of kids, plus everything else that needs to be done…such as earning a living!

About the people behind Get Out With The Kids
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.
Here’s a selection of other people that have written for Get Out With The Kids. (Thanks!)
their lives changed foreverBoth 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 approachBack 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.
weekend adventures and outdoor activities were the normMany 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.
So, ‘Get Out With The Kids’ was born to help other parents enjoy outdoor activities with their family.
