Hi, I'm Marie. I've been passionate about the beautiful places I've seen out here In British Columbia and my mission now is to show this amazing world in all ways possible to my sons Jackson and his little brother Deegan. I want to inspire families to do the same and get out into nature and explore with their little ones. I want them to learn how to appreciate what nature has to offer, teach them some basic skills about the great outdoors and help them raise some nature lovers and adventurers.
About The Little Explorers
How We Got Started
Founded in June 2017, The Little Explorers was created by Marie-Andree Racine, a Squamish local who wanted to explore the outdoors with her son and friends with kids of the same age. It started with only a few families and quickly grew to a few hundred families in less than 2 monnths.
Our group now reaches over 500 families just in Squamish and is just starting up in Vancouver and in Victoria.
The demand for outdoor adventures is much higher than I ever expected, that’s why this year, we decided to expand and are opening up new locations in British Columbia, and eventually, all over Canada and Internationally. As a member of The Little Explorers, your membership gives you access to adventuring at any of our locations.
“I believe nowadays, children don’t get enough opportunities to play outside in an unstructured kind of way. Getting out on the trail by yourself can be quite intimidating, I want to make it easy for families with young children to get outside and explore nature, try out new things and make new friends. I also want to give them the opportunity to try out new sports surrounded by other families. Learning as a group can change the way children enjoy sports and the outdoor and will impact them in positive ways. I believe we can build a community that cares about nature and our environment and raise outdoor lovers”
