Family Group

Annual Family Gathering at Cardigan Lodge
November 02, 2012
(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.

Wanda Rice
AMC NH Chapter Family Group coordinator New Hampshire Chapter class 2 leader since 2009. I lead and coordinate family oriented activities from easy to more difficult, from day hikes to overnight hut trips and lodge weekends. My two boys and my little dog love to hike also. I believe it's important for kids to experience the outdoors, and I've found they love it even more when there are other kids along. I also teach for the AMC's Mountain Leadership School in June. - photo taken top of Mt. Carrigain October 2011 with her sons - Last of the 48!
