Pack your hiking boots and bring your camera for this amazing family adventure in Grand Teton National Park. Families will hike to breathtaking vistas, canoe in glacial lakes and enjoy a sunset float down the Snake River all while exploring the wildlife and wild lands of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Families will stay on the Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools and spend their days exploring Grand Teton National Park with professional outdoor educators. Leave with memories and pictures of bison, moose, elk, majestic mountains and treasured family time in the outdoors. The festivities will end with a bang as we celebrate the Fourth of July with fireworks in Jackson Hole!

Teton Science Schools are working with the National Military Family Association to help empower military children and their families and honor the sacrifices they make for our country. Operation Purple® Family Retreats are designed to allow families to reconnect after experiencing the stresses surrounding a deployment. They are a great opportunity to spend time outdoors, try new things, make friends, and enjoy quality time together as a family.

Watch the 2010 Operation Purple Family Retreat at Teton Science Schools on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Willams.
