Bring the Family
Outdoors gear giant offers family-friendly classes

Exploring the great outdoors with outdoors retail giant REI definitely falls into the latter category, thanks to the chain’s affordable classes in activities ranging from kayaking to cycling. In this edition of “Bring the Family,” Globe reporter James Burnett brushes up on kayaking with family in tow for the start of the Burnetts’ REI adventures.
