ABOUT MINI MOUNTAINEERS

Mini Mountaineers is designed to get kiddos ages 2-5 and an accompanying adult interacting with nature together, fostering 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 outdoorsy families!

Variety of Activities

Mini Mountaineers hosts three activities per month:

  • A weekday educational activity, where we will learn about nature, make crafts, play games, and read stories relating to each theme to make learning fun.
  • A weekend nature hike at Pt. Defiance, where we listen for birds, splash in a creek, play in the sand, look for bugs,...and enjoy being surrounded by nature! 
  • An adventure activity, such as climbing night at the Program Center climbing wall, short hikes in the mountains, snowshoe outings, and more! All activities will be planned with little legs in mind! Friday nights or weekends.
