Mini Mountaineers - Seattle - 2024

Youth Program

Mini Mountaineers

The Mini Mountaineers is a community of families exploring together to inspire a love for the outdoors in the future stewards of our planet. Join your little one for nature-based activities and meet other families who love the outdoors!


Mini Mountaineers is designed to get kids ages 2-5 and an accompanying adult outside in nature together to foster the next generation of environmental stewards. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, babysitters, friends...let us do the planning to get you and your little one outside together with fellow outdoor-loving families!


Mini Mountaineers meets monthly and hosts a variety of activities including:

  • Nature walks at parks across Seattle 
  • Climbing at the Seattle Program Center 
  • Seasonal nature lessons and arts & crafts 
  • Exploring urban hikes 

Meet ups happen in small groups from January through May. Saturday meet ups run from 10-11am unless specified otherwise all season long.

In addition to monthly meet ups, we'll send fun follow-up activities--such as coloring pages, craft instructions, and scavenger hunts--to your inbox after each meet up. 


Once you register for the course, you will be able to enroll in the monthly  activities you plan to attend. Please register BOTH the youth participant(s) and an adult chaperone for each activity.

You must have a Family Membership or Guest Family Membership and complete the Youth Information Form and Youth Programs Form on your participant's profile in order to enroll.
