Whether your family is looking to surf in Hawaii or spot wildlife in Costa Rica, these trips promise to bring your passions to life—and make you feel like a kid again.

Test Your Survival Skills: The Catskills, New York

3 of 13

Say the name Bear Grylls to an aspiring young adventurer and he will unabashedly disclose his hero worship. The host of Discovery Channel’s Man vs. Wild has six camps across England; one each in Colorado and California; and another in the Catskills, 130 miles north of New York City. Hardy parents and up to two kids (ages 10–17) can ford rivers (holding on to a rope, of course), pick up fire-starting skills, and learn about self-rescue techniques during the 24-hour program. Expect plenty of mud, lots of smiles—and serious bragging rights. From $678 for one adult and one child.
