Time: Tue, Aug 8 - Thu, Aug 10, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center
The Adventure Club participants ages 8-11 will learn to work and play alongside each other as they develop their sense of adventure. Participants will experience the basics of canoeing, mountain biking, hiking and leave no trace camping through structured and thoughtful approaches. The free program will be centered around Little Dyer Pond, which is a 110 acre Great Pond with no public access. Little Dyer is a serene gem and offers local youth an authentic back country experience with the convenience of a day-program.
Over the course of the three days, participants will have the opportunity to learn by challenging themselves in a supportive setting. Our instructors will also provide guidance for future adventures by teaching what to pack and how to prepare before heading out on the trail. Our hope is that this experience opens the door for a future of exploration and adventure for participants and their families at HVNC and beyond.
