Program intended for grandchildren from 9 - 12 years of age.

Yosemite National Park is a must-see for nature enthusiasts — and it’s an incredible national treasure to share with your grandchild. Experience all that Yosemite has to offer from the Valley floor to the High Sierras. Walk the trails with park naturalists and hear from a local rock climbing expert. Enjoy the park’s majestic scenery on a mule ride adventure. “Capture” the beauty of this national park during an art session led by professional artists.

• Travel along Tioga Pass Road and enjoy a picnic lunch at Tenaya Lake.
