Chris is an avid fly fisherman and the former vice president of Denver Trout Unlimited. He, along with his wife Britta and their two kids Malana and Thomas, love to explore their home state of Colorado and spend as much time as possible outside and in the mountains. You can usually find the Heublein family camped near any type of water and enjoying home cooked meals around the campfire.
The biggest thing is getting away from screens and devices, and the general madness of daily life. I feel like kids today have a lot more pressure put on them, between school, sports and social activities, nevermind all of the digital and social platforms they have access to. And being out in nature helps us get away from that. There is no pressure for them to be or act a certain way. I see a lot less fighting and aggravation among our kids when we’re camping. They aren’t being pulled in a bunch of different directions, they’re simply here to be in the sun and have fun. I also think spending time outside is helping my family develop a greater appreciation for nature. They’re learning that we all have a responsibility to keep the environment clean and healthy so future generations can enjoy the same things.
