Read Feb 23, 2017 article about YAC on GMC's website.

These trips focus on families getting out and having fun, rather than going fast or far. Basic, progressive information about outdoor safety and stewardship will be provided with each trip, and all trips have a theme or activity. While the pace may be geared more towards younger adventurers (ages 4-8), everyone is welcome. Each outing will be tailored to the individual participants, and will be fun for the whole family!

Bread Loaf's YAC Leader: Lauren Bierman

Lauren’s first memory of hiking was a family hike for Thanksgiving in the White Mountains, where they stayed overnight in a hut with all her cousins. She remembered how freeing it felt to be in the woods for those days, and she’s been hooked ever since. She was trained as a Wilderness First Responder, a Maine State Trip Leader, and has spent 6 ½ weeks on the Appalachian Trail with nine 13-year-old girls. Earlier this year, she started the Little Hikers Hiking Group to help encourage kids to get outside and explore the forests, and to help parents reconnect with their love of hiking. Lauren has lived in Bridport for 12 years with her husband and their two boys, ages 4 and 6.
