Boomer “Day” Hike
The day hike is designed to take individuals with little or no outdoor experience, as well as those whose trail experience just needs some dusting off, into the outdoors in a controlled setting. Day Hikes are best delivered in an open outdoor environment, but can be conducted in a large indoor area, a city or corporate park, or just about any open space. Although the program can vary, the day hike will typically include basic wilderness navigation, survival essentials, proper clothing and gear, nutrition and basic first aid.
The focus is on fun, but a simple “walk in the woods” can also be a powerful learning experience. The decision making, problem solving and team dynamics of the day hike can be paired seamlessly with personal or group development goals.
