2nd Annual Kids Scavenger Hunt and Hike

The Lake George Land Conservancy is again offering a scavenger hunt and hike for kids, designed by 15-year-old Jahnavi Bhavsar of Huletts Landing, Tuesday July 26, from 11 am to 2 pm. Kids aged 7 – 13 can be dropped off at the LGLC office in Bolton Landing, and will be shuttled to the trail head for a moderate 1 mile hike up the Pinnacle.

The hike will start with an introduction to compass and map skills during check-in, and continue with a team scavenger hunt incorporating survival and nature skills-themed clues along the trail. Educational tips about hiking safety as well as some notes on edible plants will also be covered. Hikers will eat their lunches on the top of the Pinnacle. Prizes will be provided for participants.

Parents are welcome to join or head into Bolton for lunch and shopping; kids will be shuttled to and from the trail head by LGLC staff. Participants should come prepared with a packed lunch, sunscreen and bug spray, water and proper shoes for hiking. The hike is free, but RSVP is required at least two days before the event. To sign up, call 518-644-9673 or email hbartonbenedict@lglc.org.
