our story

The birth of There and Back Outdoor came about when we saw a need. There are many Youth Programs including the Boy Scouts of America who serves hundreds of thousands of children each year. It didn't take us long to find that the cost for the gear our children need for these activities and adventures are expensive and makes it hard for many families to be able to participate. Our goal is to lower cost so that children can enjoy the programs that help shape them into contributing adults.
