The Appalachian Mountain Club’s new Kid Spoken Here program offers children’s meals, family adventures, and rates of up to 25 percent off at its huts and lodges. Highland Lodge in the White Mountains, for instance, has daily activities and a new outdoor playscape where young explorers can climb a trail or crawl through a rock cave. The lodge also offers Family Adventure Weekends throughout July with guided hikes to waterfalls and some smaller peaks, and five-night Family Adventure Camps in August, with moose tours, canoe and kayak outings, and trips to a lake and a wildlife refuge. A new selection of free toddler and child-sized loaner gear will be available in the lodge’s L.L. Bean gear room.
