  4. Here is the trip description and registration link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/grand-canyon-road-trip/ Was this road trip originally planned for 2019? Yes, but I moved it to 2020 to allow us more time to plan other road trips leading up to and following this one, plus I hope to get a group block of rooms on the rim. (We loved them during our Rail Journey to the Grand Canyon!) Are spots still available for this trip? Spots are still available. I'll update this FAQ and my website when we're full. When are the educational programs scheduled? Programs are tentatively scheduled for Monday-Thursday. I'll post more details as they're finalized. Will we go on long hikes over rough terrain? Walks/hikes will be 2 miles or less (likely less), over even terrain. Will there be evolutionary content? Program staff are sensitive to evolutionary content (for example – they will describe things as adaptations instead of evolution, will present concepts as theories, etc.). However, you can opt out of any program that you feel would be against your beliefs, or use the program as fodder for family discussions later. (The price remains the same.) I live in the area - can I join your group for the day? I'm not arranging hotels, transportation, etc., for this trip, so you're welcome to register for the trip. The fee is the same, regardless of how many days you join us, or where you stay. Can I choose my own hotel? Can I use points for my hotel? Yes to both - families make their own hotel, campground, whatever, arrangements for my road trips, so choose whatever hotel or campground works best for your family. I'll try to get a group block of rooms on the rim for us. I'll provide more information and suggestions to registered families. I have a baby, toddler, preschooler - do they count in the price? Children ages 4 and younger are free, but they won't be able to attend the educational programs. A parent, grandparent , etc., will need to stay behind with them while the older children attend with the other parent or adult. I have a 4-year-old (or younger) and older children, and no other adult will be going with us. Can we attend the educational programs together? Children ages 4 and younger can't attend the educational programs, and older students must have an adult with them during programs. I recommend recruiting a grandparent, uncle, aunt, adult friend, etc., to go with you. You can alternate doing the programs with your older child(ren) while the other adult watches the younger child(ren). We're flying in. What airports do you recommend? Phoenix (PHX) is the closest major airport to the South Rim (231 miles), and Las Vegas (LAS) is the next (274 miles). Flagstaff (FLG) is the closest small airport (81 miles), but may be more expensive. Research all of them to see what the best option is for your family. Will I need a car for this trip? You can fly into the area (see above) and hire a shuttle to the Grand Canyon, then use the Canyon's shuttle service to get around. Renting a car would likely be less expensive and more convenient, though. I'll explain the different alternatives to registered families. Can you give me an estimate for hotel, campground, transportation, flights, etc.? I can't give you an estimate since each family has different needs, prefer different types of accommodations, and will be traveling from different states. Research the different options available and see what best meets your needs. To reduce the cost of your trip, use hotel points, credit card rewards points for flights or rental cars, etc. Have any other questions? Please reply in this thread and I'll answer and add it to the list!

  7. Here is the trip description and registration link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/grand-teton-road-trip/ Are spots still available for this trip? Spots are still available. I'll update this FAQ and my website when we're full. When are activities scheduled? We have something planned for August 22-24. August 21 and 25 are travel days. Will we go on long hikes over rough terrain? Each program will vary, but we won't walk over 3 miles (usually much less) each program, over mostly flat terrain. I live in the area - can I join your group for the day? We have a group campsite available to us, but you can arrange your own lodging, if you prefer. The fee is the same, regardless of how many days you join us, or whether or not you stay at our group campsite. Can I choose my own hotel or campground? Can I use points for my hotel? Yes to both - families can make their own hotel, campground, whatever, arrangements for my road trips, so choose whatever works best for your family. I recommend accommodations that are located in or near our group location. I'll provide more information and suggestions to registered families. I have a baby, toddler, preschooler - do they count in the price? Most children will count in the price. If you have a child under 3, let me know and I'll check on pricing. I have a 4-year-old (or younger) and older children, and no other adult will be going with us. Can we attend the educational tours together? Our educational tours and activities are for the whole family. We're flying in. What airports do you recommend? Here's information from the Grand Teton National Park website. Will I need a car for this trip? We'll meet in different areas of the park for our educational programs, so you'll need a car for this road trip. Can you give me an estimate for hotel, campground, transportation, flights, etc.? I can't give you an estimate since each family has different needs, prefer different types of accommodations, and will be traveling from different states. Research the different options available and see what best meets your needs. To reduce the cost of your trip, use credit card rewards points for flights or rental cars, etc. Have any other questions?

  8. Here is the trip description and registration link: https://www.travelinghomeschoolers.com/yellowstone-road-trip/ Are spots still available for this trip? Spots are still available. I'll update this FAQ and my website when we're full. When are the educational tours scheduled? They're scheduled on August 18, 19, 20. August 17 and 21 are travel days. Will we go on long hikes over rough terrain? Tours will vary for each group within the block, depending on age and ability levels. From up to 1-2 miles over mostly flat terrain, to up to 5+ miles over mixed terrain and higher elevations. You'll be able to choose your difficulty level when you register. I'll try to group families with similar ages/ability levels. I live in the area - can I join your group for the day? We now have group cabins available to us for a great price, but you can arrange your own lodging, if you prefer. (We don't have enough spots in the cabins for everyone, so they're first-registered, first-served.) The program fee is the same, regardless of how many days you join us, or where you stay. Can I choose my own hotel or campground? Can I use points for my hotel? Yes to both - families can make their own hotel, campground, whatever, arrangements for my road trips, so choose whatever hotel or campground works best for your family. I recommend accommodations that are located in or near our meeting location. I'll provide more information and suggestions to registered families. Our group cabins are $682 total per room for 4 nights. This includes one room with twin bunks and a queen bed, sleeping up to 5 people in a room. Cabins are modern, and include shared bathrooms, linens, blankets, pillows, towels, a shared kitchen (with pots, pans, utensils) and dining room, a common living room, and great views. You must bring your own toiletries and groceries. Lodges and cabins in the park are expensive (around $350-400 per night). Camping in the park campgrounds is much cheaper. I have a baby, toddler, preschooler - do they count in the price? Children ages 4 and younger are free, but they won't be able to attend the educational tours. A parent, grandparent , etc., will need to stay behind with them and are free, also. I have a 4-year-old (or younger) and older children, and no other adult will be going with us. Can we attend the educational tours together? Children ages 4 and younger can't attend the educational tours, and older students must have an adult with them during all tours. I recommend recruiting a grandparent, uncle, aunt, adult friend, etc., to go with you to watch the younger children. They won't have to pay the fee. We're flying in. What airports do you recommend? Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) would be your best bet. Will I need a car for this trip? You can fly into the area and hire transportation to our group cabins (or the area we'll be staying in). However, renting a car would be more convenient if you want to get groceries, or do things other than our tours. Can you give me an estimate for hotel, campground, transportation, flights, etc.? I can't give you an estimate since each family has different needs, prefer different types of accommodations, and will be traveling from different states. Research the different options available and see what best meets your needs. To reduce the cost of your trip, use hotel points, credit card rewards points for flights or rental cars, etc. Have any other questions?
