Building A Happier Community By Enriching The Lives Of Our Youth
WE HIKE, Inc. was established in 2019 with the goal of providing a physical and emotional outlet for youth in Monterey County. The intention behind our program is to gift middle school children the ability to experience nature, build stronger relationships with their peers, and to inspire and promote self-confidence. Studies have shown physical activities not only improve physical fitness and wellbeing in adolescents, but also decrease the risks of depression, obesity, and inattention at school. Children are happier, more self confident, and all around healthier when exposed to nature and provided the opportunity to exercise in a positive environment. WE HIKE, Inc. was founded with the purpose of building a healthier and happier community by enriching the lives of our local youth.
At WE HIKE, Inc. your child’s safety is our top priority! To ensure the physical and emotional wellbeing of your child, all group leaders and volunteers are DOJ fingerprinted and background checked. Our team of group leaders are also CPR certified and have completed the NOLS Wilderness First Aid and Preparedness Workshop. This training will help prepare our team for the unexpected, and give them the tools they need to keep your children safe while exploring the more rural areas of our beautiful county.
