One day a few years ago, a little girl, our founder’s first grandkid, was born. Her name is Lucy. It’s not short for Lucille or anything, it’s just Lucy. But she is named after someone, Lucy Pevensie from C.S. Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia.” In the fantastical world of Narnia, Lucy is known as Queen Lucy the Valiant. That’s where the “Valiant” part of our name comes from because both Lucys show that a valiant life is a life worth living.
The Outfitters part? That’s the why part of who we are. Our passion is to help individuals, families, and groups better navigate everyday life by embracing nature and the wilderness.
