Be Inspired: Introducing Hunter!
Hunter was the inspiration for this Summer 2 Remember 30 Day Challenge.
He is an 11 year old self professed 'screen addict', who called up Nature Play QLD for guideance with a 3 day digital detox challenge he undertook for a school project. Needless to say we were very impressed... but not nearly as impressed as we were when we saw the final videos!
"I'm finally getting into the habit of having no screens, and having fun without them" - Hunter.
Hunter felt so good after his 3 day detox that he's jumped on board for this 30 day challenge.
Thank you Hunter for letting us be part of this journey with you, and for allowing us to use these videos to inspire other kids to get outdoors.
