Great Kids, Great Outdoors, Great Fathers

June 17, 2009

This week, leading up to Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21, I’m posting profiles of several AMC fathers — men who share a love of the outdoors and who take the time to teach what they know to boys and girls, young men and women, in various ways. Some lead family trips. Some teach and train other instructors. Some work for AMC, some volunteer. All are fathers themselves. (One still has his training wheels — his baby is on the way — but I count him in.) All took a few minutes to reflect on their experiences in the outdoors with young people, including their own children.

If you have a story about fathers in the outdoors, you’re welcome to share it with us by posting a comment here.
