AMC-SEM Chapter

Family Events

To keep alive their inborn sense of wonder, children need the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with them the joy, mystery, and excitement of the world we live in.” (Quote adapted from Rachel Carson.)

Want some ideas for engaging kids in the outdoors? Check out our "Resources for Family Events" listed in the right column.

SEM occasionally offers family-friendly activities. Although some AMC activities are designed to appeal to a specific audience, AMC activities are open to all who meet the minimum qualifications established by the leader. Do you think your child has the fitness level and gear for an activity listed for adults? Contact the leader to understand the level of difficulty. When registering, include the childs name. Children under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult guardian who will also sign the waiver on behalf of the child.
