Took the Youth Group Hiking

Guest written by our friend Katie Callahan

Everyone loves a little field trip and taking the youth group on a little hiking adventure was no different. About a month ago, we told them about the plan and started getting parent permission slips together. That morning, all of the kids were dropped off at my house in the morning. We had a light breakfast of bagels and juice and then packed up our backpacks. After setting the Phoenix Adt security system, we loaded up into the vans and got ready to drive over to the canyon.

It only took about a half hour to get there and the weather was amazing. There was a breeze blowing the entire time, so no one really felt overheated. We were lucky as sometimes the heat out here ruins all kinds of outdoor adventures. We made it up the wash the runs through the middle of the canyon and stopped for lunch. It was the perfect place to go because it wasn't a difficult hike for the beginners, but it was something that kept everyone interested.

As the sun started to set, we were loading everyone back into the vans to head back. I think the entire day went really well. We were all outside together, having a good time and just hanging out. Most of the kids mentioned planning another hike just like this one.
