Outdoors Youtube Channel Production
February 11, 2023
Ever since I was a young lad my parents always helped me find joy in nature. Between catching bull frogs and exploring the local treasures of Ottawa, it’s fair to say I spent most of my time outdoors. I have fond memories of the first camping trips I had with my dad and I’m very lucky we still get out together. All of these things combined created a passion for getting out in every season that I don’t want to shake. Ever since I began sharing my experiences via video with the world I’ve heard comments telling me I’ve inspired them to get out in some capacity. This makes me think maybe I can be the catalyst to get others in nature like my parents did for me, an endless ripple effect.
Around 2015 I began feeling more inspired to create videos of my adventures. I saw what fun my dad was having making his creations and I’m certain it’s what inspired me along with the extreme sport “sponsor me” videos I would watch. At the time my material was more oriented around fishing but as things progressed I started incorporating other activities. Here we are today, running fun trips from spring to winter. I’m grateful to be working a job in the field I pursued academically and that it allows me to create the content you see today. Now the 5 you ask, well it’s a play on our last name. Lefebvre sounds like lefive sometimes and it just stuck throughout our family!
So now with almost 10 years of having fun we have been strategizing some different approaches for this channel. I’ve been incorporating more of my own brand presence as well as trying introduce products that I have put through the test. On top of all that I’ve met some other creative minds that will find their way onto the screen at some point or another. Building this channel has not only helped me creatively but it has also opened up a social world where I’ve found some great friends. As time goes on I hope to grow this channel to ultimately inspire other people to get outdoors. By getting outdoors you will make yourself feel better and by doing that you’ll also make those around you happier. Now, let’s get out there!
