Let's Move Outside
The Let's Move Outside campaign offers a fun way for kids to start making healthy choices at an early age. The campaign was initiated by the First Lady to get kids and their families to take advantage of America's great outdoors. Kids who participate in healthy recreation in the park can show their commitment to fitness with a Let's Move Outside sticker. The Junior Ranger program offers numerous active opportunities for kids including learning while exploring the park or participating in educational activities in a ranger-led program. Kids are also welcome to find new, creative ways to get outside and enjoy their National Park.
