This is great for the whole family. Every kid needs to be accompanied by an adult to help with activities. 

This event is best for 6 and up but talk to instructor if you have younger kids you want to bring.

We will have activity stations in the morning.

At lunch we will discuss nutrition and food for the trail.

In the afternoon we will continue with stations and then take a hike through the trails at Squaxin and practice   our new skills, including  navigation.
