Eamon and Sam both grew up in the Victorian countryside where their spare time was spent exploring bushland on their BMX bikes.

Having both moved to the big smoke (Melbourne) they have seen the different lifestyle city and suburban children are living today and the effects this has on their physical and mental health.

Reconnect Outdoors offers children an opportunity to explore the best nature parks and reserves Victoria has to offer, all within a professionally guided group alongside their peers.

Eamon has been a Victorian primary school teacher for over 8 years. His love for outdoor education grew after working on an American summer camp in his early years of teaching.
