Bear Creek Family Hike & Meetup

Join us for our First Family Hike & Meetup. Our goal is to meet other families who also enjoy the outdoors and to talk about ideas for future family-friendly CMC trips, including hikes, play dates, and a potential camping trip next summer.

We’ll meet at Bear Creek Nature Center to explore the exhibits and to get to know each other. Then, we’ll go on a short hike on the trails near the Nature Center. The weather and the ages of the children will determine the distance we go (up to 2 miles), and we will take easy, flat trails and walk at a casual pace. If the weather is good, we’ll stop for snacks outside.

Please come with the following:

Completed outdoor waiver for each participant.

Close-toed walking shoes


Snacks or lunch


Sunscreen, Sunglasses, and/or Brimmed hat

Raincoat (please dress appropriate for the weather)

Warm layer(s)

Wear comfortable clothes



One registration per family.

*Please note in comments include first and last names of all in your group, and ages of children attending.

Recommended ages/grades: Infant through Elementary School. Please bring a child carrier if your child isn’t yet hiking 1-2 miles


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
