Family-Friendly Activities for Kids
Mountain View Grand is an excellent place for families to vacation together. Not only do you get to enjoy the breathtaking views of the panoramic White Mountains, but you also get to take advantage of all the activities we have to offer adults and children. You can take a break and let your kids loose on our picture-perfect playground filled with enlightening and exhilarating activities designed just for them and no one else.
Kids will love being part of this special club while they spend time learning, making friends, and having a whole lot of fun. Trained Mountaineering Club counselors lead children ages five and older through a variety of activities designed to spark imagination and foster connections with art, nature, classic sports, and more.
