Date attended: 07/05/15 - 07/10/15 Excellent program to introduce your grandchildren to the first National Park, Yellowstone. Our group had 13 children, 7 girls and 6 boys. We enjoyed the hikes the most, especially the rim of the Yellowstone canyon. Our instructor Andrea Sarri had exceptional knowledge of the history, geology, wildlife, and ecology of Yellowstone and related to the grandchildren with ease. Our group leader, Charlie Pyle added a lot of insight also and managed the many details of the week with ease. Great way to build relationships and memories with your grandchildren - we brought grandson 8 and his sister 10.

It was a wonderful experience in Yellowstone. We came home last night from the trip. I highly recommend going with your grand children to Yellowstone. Chris and Sarah were our group leaders. We all learned from history to Geology & so on. This was our 3d trip.

Nothing can surpass Yellowstone, and when you get to a location like this with a grandchild you build wonderful relationships. Make the travel there part of the adventure.

The beauty and variety of Yellowstone to learning and doing makes this program completely experiential and unforgettable. It is active in the best possible way: getting outdoors.

My grandson and I enjoyed the Yellowstone trip very much. The leader was a middle school science teacher who not only was familiar with the geology of the Park but was excellent with the kids. The kayaking, rope course/zip line, hiking, wildlife and geyser tours were great.

My husband and I took our 9 year old grand twins on to the Roads Scholar inter generational trip to Yellowstone National Park.Our grandchildren had a great time and so did we. The trip was well organized, the instructors were very knowledgeable, very good with children and made the whole experience fun. I recommend this once in a life time experience to all grandparents.
