“My daughter and I started joining in on The Little Explorer’s adventures during the summer. Having moved back to Squamish not knowing many people this group not only helps my daughter socialize with other kids her age but has also really helped me as a single mom meet other moms in the area. I love the concept of getting the children to get outside and appreciate nature. Many people I know would not think twice about going out in the pouring rain but we go out rain, hail or shine and love it! Monday mornings are something that both myself and my 2 year old daughter look forward to every week and we are so stoked that Marie facilitates such well run and organized adventure’s each week”. -Jodi Arsenault
The Little Explorers is my favorite group for my daughter and I! I’m new to Squamish and it’s been so amazing to learn about all the trails, hikes and parks in town that are easy for little toddler legs. It’s so nice for me as well to have a consistent group of other mamas to talk to. It’s important to me that we get out in nature and play and learn! I highly recommend this group! Marie-Andrée has done an exceptional job organizing events and hikes for our Little Explorers! – Candee Clark
