Flint's Forest Rangers Kids Club

Tailored Kids Club for the Youngest Explorers


Popular Pick

Find inspiration from the consummate adventurer, Flint the Ranch Pup

Explore the wonders of our ecosystem with Flint’s Forest Rangers. Our kids club 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.

Flint is as comfortable as trail boss on a hike as he is digging for Rocks or floating on Rock Creek. Similarly, our themed days offer a well-rounded view of our ecosystem and historic past in an exciting and safe way. In 2018, The Ranch won the Virtuoso “Best of the Best” Travel Award for Best Family Program. 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, resulting in a well-rounded family vacation.

Wisdom from the wild

“It’s about building firsthand awareness and appreciation, and if people can bring that home, we can start that conversation that leads to conservation. ”

“From check in to departure nothing is overlooked. We are an easy going family but value service and attention to detail. Many resorts cater to families and have specific activities for kids but few, if any, show the same level of respect and service to adults along with their children. ”
