Remote Mountain Challenge

Here’s the plan:

  • You choose an event that you can do right where you are.
  • Then you get the event approved by Tyson (tyson.murphy@maryvillecollege.edu) or Bruce (bruce.guillaume@maryvillecollege.edu) before you go.
  • You verify completion is some agreed upon method: pictures, another person, etc.

That’s it – pretty simple.

 

Outdoors is Medicine® Celebration

Over the past 1 ½ years we’ve been working on a trademark for our Outdoors is Medicine ® program. In late July we learned from the US Patent and Trademark Office that we successfully did it! Woo Hoo!

Come help us celebrate! Since we can’t gather for coffee and cake, help us celebrate with…….recess!

Recess – a period of time when the proceedings of the day are temporarily suspended.

Let’s do this everyday – and with everyone.
Based on some of the outdoor prescription from Outdoors is Medicine® this means do recess outdoors – the more “out” you get the better. Do it for 20-30 minutes every day. Do what you want – walk, eno, swing, run, whatever. Have recess alone or with friends (complying with COVID policies). And go out for recess in the rain, when it’s cold, when it’s hot. And of course leave the screens turned off.
