— Happy Hikers Club —
A FREE social and recreational program of Metro Parks & YMCA of Central Ohio (ECRN+)

At Happy Hikers Club, we believe that ALL children should have access to the outdoors in order to play and build lasting friendships, participate in positive physical activity, and experience the sensory wonders of nature. On the first Saturday of each month, Jen Rosa, Metro Parks Naturalist, will lead us on a walk or roll to explore a new Metro Park trail. Families can build their circles of support and connect with one another through nature, in a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment.

Happy Hikers Club is tailored to children and youth 18 years and younger (but all are welcome!) alongside their family. We are an all-inclusive social club, with children and families of all abilities/disabilities, fitness levels, ages, backgrounds, cultures, etc. Metro Parks and ECRN+ staff and volunteers will ensure the pack stays together and is having fun along the way. Rewards (park buttons, club patch, water bottles, etc.) can be earned for hikers who attend multiple hikes.

— This program is open to both children and their families with special needs as well as the general community-at-large. We encourage an inclusive approach to friendship and fun… the way it should be! :)
