kids, children, games, child, adirondack kids, new yorkAdirondack Kids is a site devoted to children of all ages who share a love for nature and the great outdoors. Here, there is not MTV - only the sweet song of the whippoorwill and the soft chorus of evening crickets. How many of us can remember that magical moment when we caught our first fish or climbed our first mountain! For countless generations, the Adirondacks has helped shape our values and build character in our children. As our world continues to grow more complicated, perhaps the greatest gift we can give our children is a deep love, respect and understanding for nature. We invite you to enter this wonderful world called the Adirondacks.
