I have two sons. The older is in college and we enjoy cycling and backpacking. The younger is a teenager with autism. My wife and I involve him in a range of fitness and social activities, including Boy Scouts. He enjoys camping and hiking (see the link below) and never complains about being "unplugged" during our outings.
