Junior Ranger Program
"Another geyser? Can't we just go swimming?" Does this sound like your kid on vacation? That's the beauty of the Junior Ranger Program. It gives kids of all ages something to work towards. They'll be itching to see everything in the park just to get their Junior Ranger Badge.
Swimming in the Firehole River
If the kids are still complaining, you really can just take them swimming. A designated area along the Firehole River is packed with kids and families on hot summer days.
Just outside the park's borders, kids will love spending the day whitewater rafting, horseback riding, or on a wilderness adventures like llama tours.
One of the best things about visiting a National Park is camping. Whether your kids are experienced campers or have never slept under the stars, Yellowstone is a great place to introduce them to this amazing activity.
One of the great things about Yellowstone is that most of its hiking trails are short and easy. Almost every geothermal attraction can be enjoyed from a boardwalk trail.
