Don't Miss Out On These Activities with Your Kids
Your kids will love the adventure of becoming either a Little Cub (ages 3-6) or Junior Ranger (7-13). There are self-guided booklets sold at visitor centers throughout the national park system. These booklets contain activities to complete in order to earn a badge.
There’s also a Wee Wild Ones program that is geared towards children under 10 years with crafts, activities, and stories that cover the plants, wildlife, and geology of Yosemite. It’s free and is offered in the Curry Village Amphitheater in the summer.
Finally, the regularly scheduled ranger talk-and-walks throughout the park are an awesome way to learn about the natural and cultural history of the park.
If you are looking for a short and easy hike to do with your younger kids after they participate in the Junior Ranger Program, hike to Mirror Lake. It's super quick and there is swimming at the top.
