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 Family Explorations 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 games will get kids and adults alike learning about 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. Make unforgettable memories and connect to nature as a family on this summer adventure with AMC!
