Today we are out for adventure, into the great blue yonder, over the river and through the woods, with Jeremy Rogers, a Tallahassee firefighter with a love for the outdoors that he has turned into an organization called Tallahassee Adventure Club.
We’re going to hear his story of life transformation from the military to mountain climbing, learn about the importance of outdoor experiences for kids, and learn how we can help local kids connect with the outdoors in meaningful ways.
Now, the idea for this show came when I was recently at a summer camp with my son, and the day came for us to go swimming at the lake. For some kids, this was a regular occurrence, and for others it was the first time they had ever been in open water. Seeing their initial trepidation, fear, beginnings of confidence and trust, and eventual joy that they were not sinking, made me pick up my phone and call Jeremy, because I wanted to explore this topic more and revitalize our conversation about the Tallahassee Adventure Club.
