First Kids Hike - May 16, 2010 - Smith Side Loop
« on: May 25, 2010, 07:52:43 PM »
The club's first Kids Hike went over well.  Kathy reported that we had 16 kids, and that the vast majority of them were between 5 and 8.  We had 5 leaders and 11 other adults for a total of 32 hikers.  Kathy also mentioned receiving an email from one attendee that gave some very positive feedback on their experience.  When asked to give their email addresses if they wished to be contacted for another Kids Event, there were 8 non-members that submitted their addresses.

Getting sorted out before we got going...

 

We're off...



Riding on Mom, by far the youngest hiker on the day...



Peter looked like the Pied Piper at times, and the kids really appreciated his handing out of slices of apples along the way.



We stopped for a minute at the lookout...







In what my kids call 'The Tunnel' for the last leg back...



Kathy debriefed the kids at the end, asking what they saw, what they smelled, and what they heard along the hike, and then they devoured the cookies!
