(click to see some of our trips)

In existence for over 30 years, the Family Group offers activities for families with children of all ages. Most trips are rated easy to moderate in difficulty and include AMC lodge weekends, day hiking, backpacking, hut trips, and off road biking.  Families with more experienced teens and adults who enjoy a relaxed pace are also welcome. Our experience has shown that kids have more fun when hiking with other kids.
