Our mission is simple – let's all get off the couch and get outside!
Chesapeake Outdoor Group (COG) Kids is a free group that promotes environmental education for children through outdoor fun and adventure in the Annapolis & Chesapeake Bay area.
Free-play hours, farm visits, educational trips, volunteer efforts — we partner with local organizations for exclusive family events like these and more. When you join us, prepare to have fun, get messy and earn your bath.
Why COG Kids? Because research shows the important link between unstructured play outdoors and childhood development. Children who have free playtime outside are more likely to be healthier, get better grades in school, have higher self-esteem and be more creative. COG Kids is run by parents who understand this and live by it.
