Majesty Outdoors, the Austin, Texas non-profit that conveys hope to fatherless teenagers by taking them on outdoor adventures, has named Columbia as the “Official Outdoor Apparel Provider” of its award winning television show, which airs on NBC Sports HD and the Texas Channel.
In its most recent season, Majesty Outdoors featured nine different teens on air in nine locales ranging from South Padre Island, TX to St. Simons Island, GA. After 3 seasons of filming, a total of 22 teens have been featured on air – all of which will receive support through scholarships, encouraging the teenagers to stay in school and keep their grades up. Through the scholarship support, Majesty Outdoors demonstrates an investment in the future of these at-risk teenagers.
The scholarship culminates the long time vision of Bill Blodgett, the executive producer and host of Majesty Outdoors' nationally televised outdoor show which airs on NBC Sports HD and the Texas Channel that features fatherless teens experiencing their first fishing and/or hunting adventure.
“Ever since we began this journey in 2008, providing scholarships to our deserving teens, who are the real stars of our show, has always been the dream of the Majesty Outdoors family,” said Bill Blodgett. He added, “Now, thanks to our many sponsors and private donors, that dream is a reality.”
The mission of Majesty Outdoors is to expose “fatherless” teenagers to the Majesty of God's great outdoors, giving them a message of hope, trust and the beauty of nature outside their normal environment. Majesty Outdoors focuses on “fatherless” teens from across the country. These teens, both girls and boys, may be experiencing the absence of a father due to divorce, death, incarceration, etc. There are other teens that are technically “fatherless,” as their dads are serving our country abroad or their fathers have served and returned wounded physically, unable to take part with their sons or daughters in the outdoors. That's why Majesty Outdoors is also partnering with the Military Warrior Support Foundation based in San Antonio, Texas.
