The Children’s Grand Adventure


For Parents

Participants in The Children’s Grand Adventure are typically between the ages of 13 to 18, are off therapy and are well to travel. Participants have a history of cancer, and may include long/longer-term survivors.

Parents provide transportation to departure airport, with Teton Science Schools retrieval upon arrival in to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Children are accompanied by one Baylor physician, one physician assistant/liaison and ‘Counselors’, as selected by Texas Children’s Cancer Center.

On the Wing

While in the air between Houston, Texas and Jackson, Wyoming, guests of The Children’s Grand Adventure are accompanied by doctors from Texas Children’s Cancer Center, as well as program chaperones. These adults and older mentors accompany children throughout their entire experience in Jackson Hole, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

Our group was hiking thousands of feet up in the Teton Range and one younger girl was falling behind. We were cold and tired, but we encouraged her – and we made sure she saw how beautiful it was once you got to the top.”
