Kids Corps of Discovery

The Kids Corps of Discovery is an immersion program that replaces screen time with serene time and idle time with the time of your child’s life. Age-appropriate itineraries are available for toddlers, teens and in-betweens. The Little Discoverers (ages 3–5) will engage in everything from exploring an old ghost town to pony rides and an Old West treasure hunt. Adventure Club (ages 6–12) participants will race go-karts, do cannonballs off a rope swing at the lake, shoot arrows and mine for sapphires. They’ll all eat delicious and healthy meals and make a ton of new friends. And they’ll do things they never thought they could. The Kids Corps of Discovery gives young people the chance to explore the wonders of Montana and discover themselves at the same time.

Little Discoverers (Ages 3–5)

If only you got a nickel for every time your four- or five-year-old asks “why?” You’d never want to discourage his or her curiosity, but sometimes you just don’t know the answer or don’t have the energy to give your typical Wikipedia-esque explanations. The Little Discoverers program will give your little smarty-pants a week full of “whats” behind the “whys.” The Little Discoverers use all of their senses to immerse themselves in the history, environment and wildlife that define Montana. New friends, food that’ll appeal to all levels of pickiness and never-did-that-before activities will make for a week they’ll never forget. Why? Just because!

Adventure Club (Ages 6–12)

“I’m bored.” “There’s nothing to do.” How many times have you heard those famous words from your pre-teen? The Adventure Club at Paws Up was specifically designed to eliminate such phrases. Even for just a week, wouldn’t it be nice to hear things like “Guess what I did today?” or “I want to do that again.” We’ve concocted the perfect combination of adventure, education and fun to provide experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. And the next time they say they’re bored, you can tell them to reflect on their time at The Last Best Place. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
