June is National Great Outdoors Month and we couldn’t be more excited here at RaftUp! In celebration of Great Outdoors Month, we encourage you to spend time in the great outdoors. There are so many ways to enjoy the great outdoors with your family and friends and today, RaftUp would like to give you a few ideas for celebrating National Great Outdoors Month this June!


Fishing

It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or advanced fishermen, fishing is a great way to get out in nature and enjoy some time outdoors. If you have any nearby lakes, ponds, rivers, or streams plan a day to go out and catch a few fish! Pro Tip: Download the RaftUp App and use it as your fishing companion. Our interactive map makes navigating the waterways easy and you can create a point of interest if you find a great spot! Then, the next time you go fishing you will know where you caught fish the last time.

Boating

Plan time in June to get out on the water and RAFTUP! Enjoy a day out on the water with your family and friends and connect outdoors this June! One of the things we LOVE about boating is there are so many great ways to spend time boating – whether your vessel of choice is a fishing boat, pontoon, jet ski, speed boat, paddle board, canoe or kayak.

Hiking

We are lucky here in the United States because we have so many gorgeous spots to take a hike. There are 61 national parks in the United States which adds up to over 84 million acres of protected lands. Not to mention over 10,000 state parks too! Plan an outdoor hiking adventure close to home this June or why not plan a spontaneous weekend trip to enjoy a much-needed break to enjoy nature.

Camping

Camping isn’t for everyone but those of us who are outdoor enthusiasts love the idea of decompressing and taking time to disconnect from the world and spend time outdoors. Camping is one of the best ways to spend time in nature. Even if you can’t go camping in June, why not take time to plan a camping trip for later in the year.

Give Back to Nature

You may not have thought about this but one of the best ways you can celebrate Great Outdoors Month is to volunteer your time to help clean up the outdoors. Our favorite parks and nature recourse in the United States would not be possible without good stewardship cleaning up the great outdoors. Find out where you can volunteer your time in your community and give back to nature this June

Escape the indoors this June and enjoy the great outdoors! Before you head outdoors, be sure to Downland the RaftUp app. Use the app to connect outdoor with your family and friends.
