MEET THE ADVENTURE FAMILY
Today, a child’s education doesn’t need to be limited only to classrooms, textbooks, and worksheets. Now, education can be augmented (or even defined by) extensive travel and hands-on adventures. Instead of just reading about things in books, kids are able to go and experience the world for themselves!Janelle Schroy, Producer of Adventure Family Journal

They represent children throughout the world who want to learn through new experiences, especially travel!
