Trip description

The event is for adults and children (all ages), and consists of two parts: 1) a one-hour pre-meeting on a weekday evening during the same week as the tour itself. The information session is voluntary, where you have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge theoretically and discuss camping and being out on a hike with children of different ages. It is also an opportunity to meet the other participants and the leaders of the trip. 2) An afternoon hike and hang-out of three hours in the Grössjön nature reserve. The hike starts and ends at the Grössjön nature reserve's parking lot. For those who don’t have access to a car we will help with carpooling or other means of transportation. After a short hike, we make our way to the campsite where we offer dinner including dessert and snacks, all cooked over an open fire. In the twilight in the light of the headlamp, we discover the local area together and where the curious will be able to feel different tents in practice and see how cozy it can be. With the onset of darkness, we retreat to the parking lot and round off the Saturday evening.

So warmly welcome to an event where coziness, discovery and community on the children's terms are the focus! It is also a great opportunity to meet other Ume residents with children with similar interests!
