Kids Outdoor Zone Uses Outdoors to Raise Up Kids into Leaders

kids outdoor zoneKids Outdoor Zone is a program based in Texas that uses outdoor adventure to reach kids and equip them to be leaders in the church and in their environment.

KIDS OUTDOOR ZONE’S VISION

KOZ is an Outdoor Adventure Ministry that provides kids with mentors and direction to become Godly adults.

BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW KOZ GOT STARTED AND WHY IT EXISTS

KOZ was founded around the need of fatherless boys to have men role model to them life as a Godly man and to learn about the outdoors. We have since seen boys of all backgrounds gravitate to KOZ for mentorship, leadership, loving care, and the adventure of the outdoors. Our objective is to train up men in churches to role model and disciple the boys that are in their church or neighborhoods. We do this by creating KOZ groups in churches around the country. The HTLs (Harvest Team Leaders) are trained through our mentor program to then hold monthly meetings. At these meetings the kids are taught outdoor adventure skills with a fearless biblical and moral message. All literature and curriculum is provided. As the groups bond, the HTLs mentor the kids at other opportunities by planning hunting, fishing, and outdoor adventure trips together. KOZ also provides camp opportunities and structured events that all kids or groups can participate in.
