Pack a backpack for your child with a hat for sun protection, a bag lunch with a snack, at least one filled water bottle (two for extended days), a light poncho, warm clothes (for Holiday Quests, as we are outside as much as possible even in the winter!). Your child should be ready with sunscreen already applied. Hiking boots are recommended and give more traction outdoors, but sneakers are adequate. Sandals and crocs are not acceptable footwear for this program due to the nature of the hiking trails. Please do not allow your child to bring candy or gum, pocket knives, electronic games, money, or anything of value.
