Make the most of your time in Yosemite. Whether you’re planning your first visit or have made countless trips to the park, our programs will help you experience this remarkable place in a meaningful, memorable way.

“As a first-time visitor, I gained so much knowledge about the park. This experience gave me a renewed appreciation for our national parks.”

Outdoor Adventure participant

Connect with your park through art and theater, explore with an expert guide, plan a wilderness trip, or join us as a volunteer. However you choose to participate in our programs, you’ll be giving back to Yosemite! Proceeds from all these activities help support the park.
