Parents have to work really hard to pull kids away from the video games, mobile devices and all things digital or virtual to give them a healthy dose of reality. Not surprisingly, many find an “escape” in the reality of nature and the outdoors.
What a shame it would be to put it all away to become an accountant. Why not find a career in the wild?
On assignment for Terrain, I found 10 universities within a 200-mile radius of St. Louis that offer young adults the opportunity to build a career while indulging their passion for canoeing, rock climbing, hiking and the outdoors. They offer majors in recreation, tourism, management, outdoor leadership, therapeutic and natural resources management.
The variety is as vast as the outdoors themselves.
