HMWOutdoors is an innovative outdoor gear and apparel company focused on equipping all children and youth for amazing, life-course altering experiences in the outdoors. HMWOutdoors was started to solve a few problems: ensure every child has an opportunity to experience the outdoors without regard to income, create an incredibly convenient solution for anxious parents confronted with a packing list, and create customized gear bundles for programs they could trust to ensure all of their participants are prepared.  To solve these issues we created the Youth Adventure Kit.

            Sure, it's a lot of gear, but every item is not necessary for every trip.  Think of the YAK as an outdoor adventure toolbox.  Only take the tools needed for the adventure ahead.

            Leaders, we want to be your go-to resource when it comes time to outfit your scouts.  But before we can be your go-to resource you should see, touch, feel and test your new gear.  We're happy to come to your meeting or send you a demonstration kit.  We're committed to supporting you, your scouts, your parents and your outdoor program.

            The YAK is based on research from several Girl Scout packing list, our outdoor experience as Scout leaders, my Wood Badge course (I used to be an Owl) and from outfitting our two Boy Scouts and 1 Girl Scout.  Based on all of this we developed the Youth Adventure Kitto make outfitting that first time EASY, Convenient, and Cost effective.
