For each hike, participating youth would meet up at KidWorks and then drive together to the hiking area. After arriving, hiking leaders led the rest of the hikers to the trails and explored the spectacular views of the blue sky and the green pastures with trees. Aside from the frivolous comments regarding the weather and the high altitudes and tiredness during the hike, it was overall a very pleasing experience.
One hiker, Eva Morelos said, "The experience of a friendly excursion with KidWorks youth was priceless and unequal to any other outdoor activity I have done so far in the summer!”
Activities like these grow in people’s hearts as they endure
together through hardships such as the hot summer weather and the need for a water bottle: it created companionship.
