Active Family Adventures Captivate Kids & Parents Alike

Family adventure vacations that invoke confidence, curiosity and joy in kids and teenagers are the core components for this year's CMH Summer Adventures family vacations. Based from the Bugaboo and Bobbie Burns Lodges just west of the Canadian Rockies, these multi-generational adventures offer the perfect combination of fun, physical activity and quality family time that is sure to engage all family members from 5 to 95.

Family Adventure fun with CMH Summer Adventure Heli-Hiking tripsAt CMH Summer Adventures we know how most kids feel about “hiking” so when crafting these Family Adventures we removed the boring bits and bumped up the fun.  Each day, specially trained (and ridiculously fun) Family Adventure Leaders and CMH's professional mountain guides gather up the kids and introduce them to the wonders of this vast mountain wilderness.  Helicopter rides, high mountain ridges, mysterious forests, brilliant glacial lakes, ancient glaciers and jumbled rock moraines represent just a few of the places kids will have an opportunity to safely explore and discover.  Teenagers can test their mental and physical skills on a heart-pounding via ferrata, ziplines across a raging river or even on the Bobbie Burns ropes course if they are up to the challenge! Adults have the opportunity to hike at their own pace each day on in 'adult-only' hiking groups knowing their kids are happy and well cared for or they are welcome to join in with the kids.  Each evening, families gather back at the lodge to share the day's adventures over a beautifully prepared meal, and maybe even a water-fight on the lawn of the lodge.

This year we are offering Family Adventures in both the Bobbie Burns Lodge (July 24 – 27 and August 8 – 11) and the Bugaboo Lodge (July 27 – 30 and August 11 – 14).   Prices in Canadian dollars start from $2490 Adult, $2190 Youth (15- 17), and $1870 Child (5-14) for a 3-night escape, based on double occupancy and exclusive of HST.

And if you are trying to organize for a larger crowd, multi-generational families can book at any lodge throughout the summer and can ramp up the experience with a private guide for the group, or even a private lodge all to yourself.
