Have you ever wanted to take your family for a hike? Not sure where to go, what to bring, or how to convince your kids it will be fun? Then join us for the new Beginner Hiking Program for Families! Registering your family for this program will give you access to kid-friendly, beginner through more advanced, hikes with other families. Hike locations will mainly be Metro Boston / Eastern MA with some options for NH and the White Mountains.
During the hikes leaders will share info about appropriate clothing and equipment, trail etiquette, and basic safety on the trail. Additionally, leaders will share family tips, tricks, and fun games to use with kids to motivate them and have fun in the woods!
