Get Up. Get Out. Go Hiking!

Hike4Life KIDS

Hike4Life would like to introduce our HIKE4LIFE KIDS Program. We are really, really excited to be able to offer children's activities in our communities and to parents, looking to invest in an Outdoor Enrichment program that's centered around exposing their children to Nature in a fun and safe environment. We also engage our youth in healthy activities such as kickball, double dutch and softball. Hike4Life KIDS will have fun and educational hikes, nature walks and fishing trips, that will promote an interest in ‘Life Outside.’

All activities unless specified, are for children and parents.
Start a family tradition of going hiking one or more times a month. Kids love the sense of adventure and doing something new. There’s a wide range of trails, terrain and sights for children to behold. With kids spending a good chunk of their time indoors during the week, hiking on the weekend is a perfect way to get them outside – be it an urban park or wilderness area trail. Hike4Life is proud to be your choice for outdoor fun and activities around Greater Boston. We will continue to partner with local organizations and businesses that support our mission to leave no child inside and to help prevent childhood obesity by working with parents to involve their children in healthy active and educational fun, outside and immersed in nature.

If your family is interested in any dates before June, please let us know (617) 297.7390 or [email protected]

Good Hiker Classes for HIKE4LIFE KIDS

The Certified Good Hiker program draws on many longstanding guidelines for enjoying the outdoors while staying safe and comfortable and minimizing your impact on the environment.

The Good Hiker Class is a fun activity that introduces kids to hiking. The goal is to expose them to some basic ideas that will help them to have fun, be prepared, stay safe and tread lightly on the Earth. They are not expected to memorize every guideline, but we hope they will remember a few essential items, such as staying with their group, what to do if they get separated and staying a safe distance from animals.

The Good Hiker classes are between 2-3 hours, which will include time for lunch and snack breaks. If there are medical concerns or issues regarding photographing your child, please click here.

Parents will be asked to assist their child in filling out a short class sheet. The cost per child is $45. Every child will receive a Certified Good Hiker Certificate and $5 off of their next H4LKIDS event.
