Curated Kids Travel
Find inspiration from the consummate adventurer, Flint the Ranch Pup. The Ranch understands the need to tailor the outdoor experience to the strengths of our youngest explorers, and our Flint’s Forest Rangers club caters to a well-rounded family vacation. Flint’s Forest Rangers is a fun, outdoor educational program curated for children ages 4 to 12.
Kids participate in age-appropriate activities guided by a dedicated Flint’s Forest Rangers guide for several hours in the morning or afternoon. Rangers receive a drawstring bag with a water bottle hat and activity passport. Families can expand on the programming with the help of this passport by searching for constellations at night, illustrating what they find and picking up paw print stamps as they explore.
Our Ranch kids club has trained staff at the reins, so parents can take a little time for themselves or adventure at a faster pace. A Ranch Ambassador can help you reserve Flint’s Forest Rangers sessions during your stay.
The Ranch Kids Club
Flint is as comfortable as trail boss on a hike as he is digging for Rocks or floating on Rock Creek. Similarly, our unique themed days offer a well-rounded view of our ecosystem and historic past in an exciting and safe way. From learning to care for animals at the Barn, to exploring the banks of Rock Creek for local flora and fauna, Flint’s Forest Rangers will reconnect with the natural world and broaden their horizons. “It’s about building firsthand awareness and appreciation and if people can bring that home, we can start that conversation that leads to conservation,” says Guide Kelsey McGlothlin. In 2018, The Ranch won the Virtuoso “Best of the Best” Travel Award for Best Family Program (formerly called Little Grizzlies Kids Club).
Babysitting is offered as a separate program from the Flint’s Forest Rangers program at an additional fee of $40 per hour per babysitter for a minimum of two hours. You may sign up for babysitting services at The Ranch with a 48-hour notice. Cancellation has to be given within 24 hours of a babysitting session or guests will be charged in full. Please contact a Ranch Ambassador for more details.
