We love hiking around Pittsburgh with our kids. It's really easy to find great hiking spots on trails in city parks and in the numerous parks outside of the city. The hard part is finding trails and hikes that work for the youngest in our family who is only four years old. That's why Tyke Hikes, offered Venture Outdoors, is such a great idea!
I'm excited to announce I have two free passes to any upcoming Tyke Hike, so don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the post!
Venture Outdoors is hosting a Family & Community Festival on August 23rd from 1-4 PM. The festival is free and open to the public and offers a climbing wall, kayaking, biking, geocaching and more! It sounds just about perfect for our family…maybe yours, too!
Here's more info about Venture Outdoors:
"Venture Outdoors is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reconnecting the people of Pittsburgh to nature. We have a wonderful program called Tyke Hikes that strives to build a strong relationship between young children and the great outdoors.
Tyke Hikes are created specifically for young children under the age of 5 and their caregivers. These easy hikes take place in stroller-friendly parks around the Greater Pittsburgh area. The program’s interactive and educational curriculum encourages kids to touch trees, look for bugs, and discover the world around them. However, kids aren't the only ones having fun on a Tyke Hike! While the kids are busy exploring, moms and dads will have the opportunity to meet and connect with like-minded parents. The hike ends with a gluten-free/dairy-free snack and a craft, and Pittsburgh’s littlest adventurers will go home with a newfound appreciation and excitement for nature.
Venture Outdoors’ mission is to make the outdoors accessible to all members of the Pittsburgh community. In the past, Venture Outdoors has been able to hand out free Tyke Hike passes to inner-city families who have limited access to outdoor recreation opportunities. Tyke Hikes’ proceeds go towards the continuation and growth of this practice, helping us to get all “Kids on the Right Path.”
You can visit Tyke Hikes for a list of upcoming public Tyke Hikes. Venture Outdoors also books private Tyke Hikes for birthday parties, child-care centers, summer camps, and more."
