Re: How can I get my family interested in the outdoors? 
When my kids were young we did backyard camping and just expanded until we were camping all over the country. You might check out an article I wrote about backyard camping. It has some great Ideas https://www.sooperarticles.com/travel-articles/camping-articles/make-kids-fall-love-backyard-camping-1670338.html

As adults my kids love camping.

Start them young and somewhere familiar like the backyard before heading out to the forest.

Re: How can I get my family interested in the outdoors? 
With my little ones I got them interested by buying play tents. The 2 best ones I found to help them get enthused about camping are the Little Tikes RV Camper Tent and the Forrest Friends Tent. What I did was set up a back yard mock camping trip and we had a blast! I set up the kids tents and we set up our real tent and we spent the night hoping around different tents or creating our own little fire pit with smores time. The kids truly loved it and we are now planning a real camping trip in Ocala, FL and everyone is on board and excited about it!

You can find them at Target, see links below!

I wouldn't recommend pushing them to do anything they don't like but in fact, make sure that you involve each member in the planning of the fun parts. For example get your camping gear, family tent , games, food shopping together.

Start small! Get them excited to do small trips outside like hikes, trips to the zoo, or fishing.

Find out what parts they like about being outdoors and then plan the family vacations around that.
