About

The 6th Annual Happy Trails for Kids Hike-A-Thon will be at Temescal Gateway Park on Sunday, December 4th. Happy Trails for Kids is about fun and friendship and developing self-confidence for youth in foster care.

Happy Trails for Kids programs provide kids ages 7 to 18 with enriching outdoor adventures, invaluable mentorships, and opportunities to develop leadership skills and prepare for life after foster. We believe that fostering continuity and belonging is the first step in combating the challenges of foster care and promoting success.

Our annual Hike-A-Thon and Family Fun Day is the only fundraiser for Happy Trails each year. The event brings together our campers, counselors and the community to hike, face paint, enjoy music, sing camp songs, enjoy yummy food and play games and activities.


We need volunteers to help with set-up, serving breakfast and coffee, registration, raffle tickets (and help if you can gathering any raffle items in advance), staffing the bounce house, making cotton candy and popcorn and helping with games and activities for the campers and the families who attend.

Anyone who volunterers can hike and lunch will be provided. We are also looking for people to start hike teams, get corporate sponsors and spread the word about the Hike-A-Thon!
