Our Story

Our Squamish location is where The Little Explorers was founded. In June 2017, Marie-Andree decided to start a facebook group for parents and children to get together weekly and go for little hikes and walks around town. She wanted to let her toddler explore the trails at his own pace, and exploring with friends is always way more fun. This group quickly grew and became a tight community of like-minded parents that also had the same desire for their families.

Nature Walks

Here in Squamish, every Monday morning, from 10-12,  we host meet-ups that are held at a different location each week. We want to be diverse in our outings as much as possible and give the chance to the little ones and their families to experience as many different kinds of adventures as possible and get them out of their comfort zone, surrounded by a supportive community of like-minded parents.
The meeting destination will be posted on our facebook group or in our event calendar

  • Weekly nature walks
  • Monthly scavenger hunts or Nature arts

Bike Club

The Little Explorers Bike club is an exciting group for Children between the ages of 1-5 who love to ride their bikes on the trails.
Participate in group rides where the kids will get to know all the secret bike trails and pump tracks around town.

There are so many benefits to starting the kids early on wheels.
Biking is pure and simple, it keeps kids physically active, it benefits kids’ mental health and learning, it is something that the whole family can enjoy together,
it is good for the environment and it is a great way to get around.

The little ones will make new riding buddies and gain confidence in their biking abilities in a safe and fun way. (Children must be accompanied by a parent.)

The meeting destination will be posted on our Squamish facebook group or in our event calendar
