California Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights

The California Roundtable on Recreation, Parks and Tourism adopted the California Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights for the purpose of recommending a fundamental list of ten experiences that every child in California would benefit from before entering high school. The activities include fishing, swimming and hiking, among other outdoor recreation activities. Citing the documented benefits of these activities on the health and well being of children, the Roundtable has asked Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to issue an Executive Order adopting the Outdoor Bill of Rights as the guideline for parents, guardians, parks, communities, private enterprises and all state, county and local agencies for encouraging every child living in California to experience each of the activities.
