The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation has uncovered the following useful statistics about youth engagement in the outdoors:

- 75% of teachers feel students who regularly spend time outdoors are more creative and better problem solvers.
- Only one third of high school students get their recommended levels of physical activity.
- 90 percent of adult outdoor enthusiasts were introduced by a parent to outdoor activities between the ages of 5 and 18.
- A lack of time is the top barrier keeping youth non-participants in outdoor recreation indoors.
- While 26 percent of children say that mobile technologies take away from their enjoyment of outdoor activities, 41 percent of adolescents and 56 percent of young adults say mobile technologies add to their outdoor experiences.
