Begin at the Teton Science School, where you and your family will learn important camping and camping skills like “Leave No Trace” ethics and prepare for your camping adventure with a hike in Grand Teton National Park. Then take what you’ve learned to Yellowstone as you camp together in our nation’s first National Park, learning about geological features like Old Faithful and keeping an eye out for wildlife on hikes and a safari! Then reflect as a family each night with s’mores by the campfire.
