We just got back from a week in Yosemite. AMAZING experience and opportunity to say the least.
We had 4 kids:
ages - 8, 10,12 & 14
My wife has the greatest idea to create scavenger hunts each day with prizes and rewards at the end of each hunt. It created a way for them to explore, learn and appreciate the what,why and how Yosemite is awesome. The kids didn’t even notice the 6-12 miles a day we hiked throughout the park. Needless to say the kids were excited to share their experiences and there was a little competition that kept them all motivated.
