Wee Wanderers: Cardigan Lodge

Date and Time

Cardigan Lodge,
New Hampshire, White Mountains,


Registration is required for this activity.

(best time to call: 9am - 5pm, Monday - Saturday)


AMC offers the perfect 3-day program for you and your little ones to explore the outdoors! Designed for families with 3-5-year-old kids, Wee Wanderers will tap into and encourage the natural curiosity of young children as we explore the natural world around Cardigan Lodge. At a quiet, roadside location amid a beautiful, AMC-owned, 1,200-acre reservation, Cardigan is the ideal place for families to connect with the outdoors and each other. Our experienced guides will lead fun activities while balancing the needs for activity and rest. Pond discovery, nature trail exploration, and a visit to the nearby Squam Lakes Natural Science Center will help introduce kids to the animals and other inhabitants of the Lakes region. Outdoor sessions involve walking less than a mile on uneven terrain for pond discovery and nature trail exploration. Indoor sessions include stories and craft time.
