For Families with Young Children who want to get out with other Families and Explore
- Rock climbing at Riverfront Rock Gym in Wenatchee.
- Hike up Balsamroot Trail in the Sage Hills of Wenatchee.
- Hike up Devils Spur trail near Mission Ridge.
- Birding with the Audubon society at the Horan Natural Area in Wenatchee.
- 1 Camping trip. Location to be decided.
The first outing will be Wednesday May 3rd, at 5:15 p.m. at Balsamroot trailhead in the lower portion of the Sage Hills. Please see the attached map for directions to the trailhead. Park at the end of the pavement of Horse Lake Road before the dirt begins.
For each outing, it is expected that families go at their own pace. We will all start outings together but we can all finish at different times. For example, if your toddler is screaming and having a melt-down, please expect that the rest of the families will continue with the hike at their own pace. Bring your own vehicle so that you may leave when you need to.
You will be responsible for your family, or for the children in your care. The purpose of these outings is to introduce families to new experiences, to make new friends, to support one another and to know that IT IS possible to get outside with young children.
Please make sure to bring ample snacks, water and appropriate attire for each outing. You will be expected to pay the admission fee at R.R.G. and for the gear to rent. All other trips should be nominal in cost if no cost at all.
Looking forward to getting outdoors with you and your family!
