What is Hike It Baby?

What does the membership go to?

Your membership helps Hike it Baby with long term growth and sustainability. As a platform to gather and grow communities, Hike it Baby offers new parents an opportunity to connect and get into nature with their young children. Sure, anybody can go hiking, but as a new parent, how many times have you struggled to find new friends who understand what you are going through and who will support you in a judgement free community that will never leave you behind?

Here’s what your contribution will support:

  • Maintain the website and calendar nationally so you can hike anywhere you want!
  • Employment opportunities for the administrative staff of Hike it Baby.
  • Support branch initiatives at a local level.
  • Pursue long term strategic goals for organization.
  • Expand our community online and offline so we can offer more workshops and opportunities for families to connect.
  • Develop programs to work with diverse communities, government and other agencies.
  • Build out online tools such as year-round hike log, a buy/sell forum for gear nationwide, a place to research Hike it Baby friendly hikes.

We offer organized information that facilitates your family’s journey into nature and helps you find your community. Members get access to the calendar of hikes, an opportunity to participate in virtual challenges to motivate your family to get outside, the ability to utilize special discounts from brands we partner with, and connection with families across North America. Most importantly, members support Hike it Baby as we work to advocate for getting families into nature starting from birth. Together we are raising a generation to love the outdoors.

How long does the membership last?

You can choose to sign up for one year or for a lifetime as a Founding Member. It’s up to you.

Note for International Participants

Participants outside of the U.S. are not required to purchase a membership for access. We welcome you to purchase a membership to support our mission of getting families into nature!
