Young Adventurers Club

YAC provides an opportunity for families and their youngest hikers to get out and explore the woods at a comfortable, playful pace. The goal is to encourage and promote children’s enthusiasm for playing in Vermont’s outdoor spaces, and trips focus on families getting out and having fun, rather than going fast or far. Check out our Facebook page for pictures and descriptions of past outings: https://www.facebook.com/GMCBurlington

Contact Michael Dillon, YAC leader, for more information at dmichaeldillon113@gmail.com. Happy trails!

Young Adventurers Club outings provide an opportunity for families and their youngest hikers to get out and explore the woods at a comfortable, playful pace.
