South Jersey Trails Event – Daddy-Kid hike!

Trailhead.

My wife is a member of approximately 43,000 moms organizations (might be a slight exaggeration), which is great. However, one buddy who’s a new dad was lamenting that there don’t seem to be many dad clubs out there.

Hence, a Dad-Kid hike! All dads/grandfathers/male guardians are welcome to bring their kiddos along for a hike at Crow’s Woods Nature Preserve in Haddonfield on Sunday, May 31! We’ll be hiking about 1 1/4 miles, which should take about an hour (Noon to 1 ish). A waterbottle and solid shoes are highly recommended.

Come on out and take in some nature while meeting some other local dads. Feel free to spread this around, all Dads-Kids are welcome!

If all goes well, this may be the first of many!

This being the internet age, there is (of course) a facebook event – Facebook event page.  You can also e-mail me at southjerseytrails@gmail.com if you aren’t on facebook.
