A Unique Learning Adventure for Families

The Yellowstone for Families Lodging & Learning package is designed for families with children (ages 8-12) who want to have a truly memorable experience in Yellowstone. Families will be led by a Yellowstone Forever field educator who handles all the logistics while ensuring everyone gets to see Yellowstone’s most popular features. This family learning adventure connects both children and adults to the Yellowstone experience through activities that integrate scientific observation, art, and more. Each day, you will venture out with a Yellowstone Forever educator to learn about and explore a region of the park, while incorporating short, scenic hikes throughout the program. During the program, parents will help their children complete the requirements of the National Park Service‘s Junior Ranger Program, and the week will end with ceremonial presentation of Junior Ranger badges by a National Park Service ranger.  View the itinerary.

Lodging & Learning programs are offered in partnership with Yellowstone Forever.

What Guests Are Saying...

“Brittany was amazing! I don’t think there is a better guide out there. She planned an amazing and diverse trip for us, is extremely knowledgeable and every day there was a special activity that she introduced as well. We all said we missed her on Friday when we left and considered ourselves very fortunate to have met her.” – Peterson Family, RI

“The quality of the teaching was beyond stellar. We loved it, and my kids have not stopped talking about Sam and his wolf stories! Wildlife watching was definitely a highlight of our time. We loved learning about the animals of Yellowstone, the history of the wolves, and stories of the wolves’ lives in the packs as well as older rangers and some groundbreaking work they had done, including how they measured the depth of the Grand Prismatic!” – Julie, MD

“Amanda’s activities and stories were amazing. The sites obviously are breathtaking. But, her knowledge made the experience so much better for both myself and my children. Wonderful family tour.” – Anne, FL
