How to Create the Perfect Family Vacation

Add Kids and Grandparents!

Three generations of family came to visit from Minnesota. They are used to the cold but this week it was very warm. Hence the shorts and short sleeves. Now imagine you are fighting a fire in temperatures that were as warm as that day? And you cannot wear shorts!

The family came to Yellowstone Nature Connection to take part in our signature The Junior Smokejumper Program® on a beautiful summer day. While they might not have the Northern Rockies, the kids understood the fire going up!

They came to learn about smokejumpers, and had fun with the match-stick forest experiments. They learned about fire, fire ecology, clothing and tools of a smokejumper, and jumping out of our mock plane.

The Junior Smokejumper Program® was great for all!  Here are the pictures of everyone.

Thank you for coming and enjoying the program. To download the pictures, click on a picture and then right-click to download the picture.
