About Us

Camp Roots was founded in 2013 by April Rose, an educator and mother of five with a passion for the outdoors and a simple mission: to get kids outside. April spent her childhood afternoons freely exploring outdoors: playing at the park with friends, making forts in the bushes outside her home, catching bugs and making them her pets, or just being outside. She credits those hours of unstructured engagement, wonder, and discovery for shaping her love of nature and her entrepreneurial spirit.
