Are you not an outdoorsy person, but know you should be because of all the amazing health benefits and memories you can make?

If yes, then our Basecamp Basics with REI Co-Op outdoor adventure is perfect for you.
My name is Kelly Lam, and I used to hate the outdoors. My mind was made up before I even tried anything outdoorsy. I remember saying, “who wants to sleep on the dirt”? Or “there’s going to be so many bugs”. And my favorite, “there’s no air conditioning”. (Yes, I’m embarrassed to say I said that.)
Everything changed one summer when my uncle dragged me to Lassen National Park to go camping with his outdoor friends. On that trip, I learned how to pitch a tent with a soft, cloud-like sleeping pad; how to start a glorious campfire that kept our group warm with a simple magnesium striker, how to roast s’mores while sharing stories under the stars. (Yes! You can see all the stars away from the city.) And so much more… that these are some of the most cherished memories of my life.
In fact, I am now able to share these camping traditions with my own family years later. My kids love the outdoors and can’t wait to camp outside to spend quality time with us and Mother Nature.
