Mountains and Mindfulness

Join us for the month of April, and participate in our Mountains & Mindfulness activity as part of our Centennial Year Celebration.

There is no better time than the Spring to start enjoying the outdoors. Parks are a great place to encourage physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Connecticut is lucky to have plenty to explore! CTAHPERD has created a passport to enhance the mind body connection. 

Activity Guidelines:

Hike – Your Mountains and Mindfulness passport offers a variety of hiking locations in different CT State Parks.  Complete as many hikes as you would like, while earning points for each. Submit your passport via Google Form by April 30th.

Mindfulness – The passport also offers activities such as meditation and yoga.  Complete as many mindfulness challenges as you would like, while also earning points for each.

Fee:$10 individual $30 group (family or team)-  A portion of the proceeds will benefit a local charity. (participants choice)


  1. When you open the passport, you will see a table with various trails and mindfulness activities. PASSPORT HERE 
  2. Each column has a different point value.

Cheers to 100 Years! 

The CT Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. Founded in 1921, the strength of our organization derived from the selfless efforts of leaders, members and volunteers who dedicated their time to enhance the profession. For the past century, many professionals shared their expertise and knowledge by providing workshops, presentations and other professional development activities to ensure best practices in health and physical education. To celebrate this milestone, we created limited edition apparel to honor all our leaders, volunteers and members who inspired us throughout the years.

Our 100th year limited edition apparel will help support CTAHPERD’s mission “to advocate for healthy lifestyles by providing leadership and professional development opportunities that increase knowledge and sound professional practices.” Proceeds will benefit our mini-grants.

Thank you for your support!
