We are city people so we dont get to experience the outdoors like we want.


If the above statement is true just camping itself might be as much or may be more that you and your family can handle at least as a starting gesture. May be a few basic camping trips might be better than trying to fill the cup all at one time.
PREPPERS SAVE THE EXCUSES, IT'S NOT ABOUT HAVING TIME, IT'S ABOUT MAKING TIME, IF IT MATTERS YOU WILL HAVE TIME
Every one has priorities, different for each of us, main reasons most of us can not form a group that will last our priorities are all different so are you. REMEMBER, IF YOUR PREP PRIORITIES ARE LOWER THEN THE PEOPLE YOU CAN'T WORK WITH, THEY MIGHT MAKE IT AND YOU WON'T, DON'T BLAME THEM FOR NOT OFFERING YOU HELP LATER, WHEN YOU FAIL LATER AND YOUR IN TROUBLE. BLAME YOUR PRIORITIES.

Map reading and compass are always skills that need polished. You could set up a scavenger hunt using compass headings and distance. It was fun to play when we did it. Sort of like GeoCaching. Combine that with other wayfinding techniques.

Scat, track, and plant identification are another. Get some local ID books for all of the above. Can make more fun games with that out while wandering around.
