For Families with Young Children who want to get out with other Families and Explore

Outings Include:

  • Rock climbing at Riverfront Rock Gym in Wenatchee.
  • Hike up Balsamroot Trail in the Sage Hills of Wenatchee. (completed)
  • Hike up Devils Spur trail near Mission Ridge.(completed)
  • Birding with the Audubon society at the Horan Natural Area in Wenatchee.
  • 1 Camping trip. Location to be decided.

The third outing will be at Riverfront Rock Gym in Wenatchee on Wednesday August 23rd at 4:15pm. This is a great place for kids to burn energy and for adults to have fun. They also have AC on these hot and smoky days! If you have a harness, belay device and rock climbing shoes bring them with you. If not, you can rent them from the climbing gym. You will have to sign a digital waiver if you have not been to this gym before which you can complete HERE so you won’t have to do it when you show to the gym.

Cost for a child 13 years and under is $12. If cost for this activity is an issue for you, please email so we can figure something out for your family. For more information visit the Riverfront Rock Gym website.

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 or activity 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!
