This is a group for families (parents/caregivers and kids 6 and up) seeking connection and community doing outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, kayaking, boogie-boarding, etc. Paul and Sara (father and daughter) created this outdoor adventure group to share our love of the outdoors and meet like-minded families. Ages 6 and up are welcome - Sara is 9 and she'd love to meet kids in that age range. No adults without kids and all kids must be accompanied by an adult on all outings. We look forward to exploring the outdoors with you!
Hikes are generally within a 60-minute drive of Berkeley and are typically be 3 to 6 miles at a pace of 1.5 to 2 miles per hour. This can be tough for some kids but peer-pressure helps - as well as jelly beans or a treat at the end (we'll usually plan to end hikes with a visit to a local ice cream shop or similar). Unless otherwise noted, rain cancels outings.
When you RSVP, please indicate how many guests (family members) you will bring with you. If you decide not to come, please let us know at least 3 days in advance so we know what to expect and so others can join us. We understand that sometimes you may have to cancel last-minute. All we ask is that you let us know: no-shows are not OK. Finally, please include a photo of yourself on your profile so we can all see who we will be hiking with: this is a private group (and Meetup is pretty good with privacy).
