Outside inside Gifts and GamesOutside Inside was born on backcountry family camping trips. Once
the site was picked, the tent was up and the fire was stoked, we would
inevitably find ourselves searching for fun new ways to bring the family
together that allowed us to enjoy the natural beauty surrounding us.
We’d bring along our favourite games from home, like cribbage, chess
and backgammon, but found them to be bulky, with parts that were
easily lost or damaged by the weather. So, we started making our own
versions that were lighter, more compact, durable, and easy to set up. We
reimagined how these classic “inside” games could be played outside on
We knew these adventure-tested games could bring families together for
fun in the outdoors, just like they did for us. Decades later, our mission
is still the same: to help people of all ages and abilities celebrate the
outdoors with games and gifts that inspire connection: with one another,
with nature and with the spirit of adventure.
