About Us

The outdoors was created for everyone to enjoy and love.

Who We Are

MyOutdoorJoy is an outdoor education, event and experience company providing people with beginner to moderate level outdoor experience the knowledge, skills  and opportunity to participate in a variety outdoor recreational activities, as well as learn new skills.

As access and awareness to outdoor activities has increased, many adults have limited opportunities to learn new outdoor recreational activities in a meaningful way. 

MyOutdoorJoy offers classes, provides outdoor recreational equipment and customized group events based on the skill level of our participants. 

At MyOutdoorJoy, we want everyone to enjoy the outdoors and all the benefits that nature has to offer.

Our Mission

MyOutdoorJoy’s mission is to enhance participation in outdoor recreational activities by increasing all of our participants confidence and knowledge in a variety of outdoor skills and activities. 

We hope that by increasing participation in outdoor activities and connecting people with nature, participants will be more attentive to environmental issues, conservation and the stewardship of nature.

Our Why

Studies show that spending more time outdoors has numerous mental and physical health benefits. These benefits include,  but are not limited to lowering blood pressure, helping sleep cycles, and improving anxiety. 

We believe that helping people spend more time outdoors,  creates a happier, and healthier community.
