Our mission is simple… We love to have fun outside with our kids, regardless if it is swimming with manatees in Florida, exploring Central Park in New York or just simply being outdoors PLAYING in your own backyard. We try our best to provide you with the best information about simple outdoor ideas and being active outdoors.
Our roots are Scandinavian, American and Canadian and our philosophy is based on the Norwegian word “Friluftsliv”. For us, enjoying nature is a lifestyle and a way of life. We believe that regardless of where you live, you can live your life the Fresh Air Living way.
In 2011 activekidsclub.com launched their own line of safety reflectors as another way to get kids and adults outside safely in our communities.
So go outside and play!

Russell is a two time Gemini nominated Director of Photography in the film and television industry. He feels lucky to make his living doing what he loves in life. Being a cinematographer demands skills both creative and physical. His office ranges from steamy tropics to icy winter conditions where he has learned the importance of having the proper gear.
Raised on a horse farm in Minnesota, he thanks his childhood for introducing the outdoors to him at an early age. His experiences as a child fueled his imagination and his exposure to the outdoors supplied his passion and physical skills he uses everyday in his work.
“I have thought about how important it was for me to fall a lot as a child. I was thrown off horses, I fell out of trees and I have had "yard sale" wipe-outs downhill skiing," said Russell, "It has given me the agility and confidence (both mental and physical) that help me get the images that my clients demand. It may sound silly to say, but I want my daughter to fall as much as I did when I was growing up.
