H.I.K.I.D.S is a motivational program designed to aid and encourage all youth to develop self-esteem as well as a sense of self-accomplishment. With the help of volunteers, churches, and local businesses, this endeavor is accomplished through personal outreach and planned activities such as camping, hiking, fishing, and cycling which include the entire family. These activities enhance and promote family life. We model and expect exemplary sportsmanship and respect during all activities.

Weekly, two-hour meetings of H.I.K.I.D.S are held where guest speakers address the youth. We offer wildlife, nature, craft, and hygiene programs as other presentations at meetings. Tutoring assistance is available weekly as well as offering at least one field trip a month for the involved youth. We believe it is important to praise and reward their academic achievements as they improve.

Faith in God is the key ingredient to our HIKIDS program. We strive to instill in the youth, a greater appreciation for life and respect (especially for those in authority) for others. We believe in making an investment in each youth’s life. The steps we take jointly, as a community to do just this, will improve our youths’ society today and result in a stronger, better world for them tomorrow. Our motivation is to show love.


Our goal is to help boys and girls develop Socially, Physically, Mentally, and Morally.

Our goal is to help young men and women develop into Socially, Physically, Mentally, and Morally functioning adults in society.
