Why the outdoors is great for your child (and for you): There is nothing like the wonder of nature to peak a child’s curiosity, forging powerful lifelong connections with the natural environment. Taking kids hiking helps them develop a lifelong relationship with nature and the great outdoors. A trail hike can offer kids opportunities to traverse rocks, navigate exposed roots, and climb over fallen trees, building balance and agility while learning just how smart and confident they can be. Away from cars and other dangers, they are free to run and joyfully proclaim, “I did it!”.

Your guide will gather everyone at the trailhead, and introduce the group to the incredible, fun-filled, educational day that lies ahead. We will start a beautiful 2-mile hike on a gentle trail in the forest, listening and observing the wildlife. At our first stop, we’ll have our first lesson! Together we’ll learn how to built a forest shelter. Everyone will work as a team, experiencing the fun of gathering branches and building, led by your guide.

We will walk a little deeper in the forest and have our picnic under the trees, while the moms relax and the kids explore nearby.

After lunch at our second educational stop, you will learn and practice wilderness survival tips that can prepare them for a lifetime of outdoor fun, like building a campfire. It’s serious learning, but it’s also seriously fun.

We will be back at our cars around 5pm, full of memories and stories to tell at school on Monday!
