I normally bring my kids to hiking trips as well.
And so far I have only found a few such as this one guidedhikingtrips.com …if some one has any more good sites that I can refer to, please inform me…Summer vacation is here and I am preparing for a family trip.

Camp Henry Horner, Ingleside Il has launched their Green Guardian Effort to plant trees to block the loss of the nature preserve feel on over 180 acres. This 91 year old non profit camp is losing its sacred natural resources as the din of TV screens reflect in the retention pond where an empty field that once sported beautiful century old trees and prairie sat adjacent to the cabins. The Green Guardian Fund is groundbreaking with their tree first major planting event on Earth Day 2010!
