Young Adult Hike

GHA will host a day hike for young adults within our service area. They must be ages 19-25 with a bleeding disorder and they may bring a significant other. The group will depart for the hike from The Lodge of Four Seasons on Friday, April 16, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. This 4 mile hike will be at Lake Ozark, MO. The objective is for young adults to connect and grow in a safe environment. GHA and the staff of volunteers want this to be an exceptional experience for all! Qualified volunteers and a nurse will be on the hike to address any issues that arise during the hike. GHA feels that education is a very important aspect of every program and have included educational components with the goals of building self-confidence, management of their disorder, positive attitudes, appropriate decision making skills and independence. It is our hope that the young adults will be empowered to be leaders in the community and make lifelong friendships. Please wear proper clothes and shoes for hiking. Check the weather prior to the hike to prepare. Lunch, and snacks provided. Please contact Bridget at or (314) 482-5973 with any questions. Registration closes 3/26.
