Crystal Osborn of Osborn Family Hikes and her husband wanted to show their daughter the true beauty of the outdoors. They wanted to make sure she knew more than just what was in front of the TV. To go out and explore the world. So they bought a hiking baby carrier and started taking family day trips on hiking excursions. Crystal has been hiking with her children since they were 6 weeks old, and has learned a lot of tips and tricks along the way! In this class, Crystal will focus on teaching you the basics to getting your little ones outdoors in the most comfortable and safe way possible. We will go over everything from what type of carrier you should use, what to pack, emergency/first aid kit, and even some fun games you can play to keep the older ones interested on the trail. Crystal will bring a sample of what she takes on the trail, including the carriers she personally uses for her two girls. She will also include 3 FREE Hiking Bingo cards to bring with you and your kids on your next adventure, and you'll get a goody bag to take home filled with small gifts for you and your family!
