I have a 10-yo daughter and I am interested in bringing together dads and daughters ages 9-12 to explore and do outdoor activities in nature in and around Texas and beyond. My daughter and I like camping, backpacking, and canoeing and we are looking for like-minded friends to join us. I am interested in cultivating a group that is committed to getting outdoors regularly and is willing and able to invest time and resources. Please, let me know if you are interested.
My daughter is older now, but we found something like what you're talking about in an existing program called HATS (high adventure Treks). It's a dad/daughter (and now also separately dad/son) camping program for 4th-9th grade that we loved.
