Embark on a family adventure of a lifetime through a winter wonderland in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Connect as a family and learn to cross country ski and snowshoe while exploring the wildlife and wild lands of Jackson Hole, Wyoming in the winter. 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 moose, elk, majestic mountains and treasured family time in the outdoors.

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 help families reconnect after deployment.
