Do you wish your child had more outdoor time? Are they the kind of kid that wants to explore nature, have an adventure, and be "unplugged"? Or, would you like them to be??
If you need after-school care and want the option for that to happen away from school, Trail Trekkers is for you!
Trail Trekkers is all about getting outside and connecting with nature while disconnecting from technology. Join us every for the first session of Wednesdays where we will hike, run, walk, explore, learn and be one with nature as we explore streams, brooks, and rivers.
They should dress for the weather and be prepared to have fun!
The last day of each session will be "Adventure Day" where we will venture away from PMEC to a local destination. Stay tuned for more details!
