Take your kids on a #TrekAt2 without leaving your house

Social distancing may keep you from physically canyoneering at Zion National Park or traversing unseasonably cold streams at Yosemite. But you and your kids can still take on rugged explorations you never imagined!

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2 p.m. Central, Boys’ Life editors are jumping on Facebook Live to share treks, jokes and mind-bending facts that will take your kids on a journey all over the world – and even to space!

How to Tune Into #TrekAt2

  1. Set a reminder on your phone. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a few minutes before 2 p.m. Central (that’s 3 p.m. Eastern, 12 p.m. Pacific), gather your kids or family unit around your phone, tablet or computer.
  2. Head to go.boyslife.org/fblive 
  3. Get ready for the Boys’ Life Facebook page to go live so you and the fam can enjoy an adventure from inside your home.
  4. Comment along and share family-friendly jokes. Our hosts are reading your comments in real-time and would love to give you a shout out!
