Is there a resort inside the park that has group programs for kids?
We're interested in taking three boys ages five, seven, and eight and are interested in organized activities for them during the day. We are also interested in hikes and talks for adults with the boys. Also spa activities for the parents. We can be there for a week, 6 adults and 3 boys.

I'm not sure you will find spa activities at any of the lodges within Yellowstone itself, although there are nearby options in ski towns like Jackson and Big Sky, if that is important. The National Park Service puts on some excellent programs, including the ever-popular Junior Park Ranger series. I would also highly recommend looking into the group programs at the Yellowstone Association Institute, too, which include guided family programs lead by skilled naturalists (more here: http://www.yellowstoneassociation.org/institute/lodging/programs.aspx). For some more reading and ideas, you should also check out this guide to family vacations in Yellowstone from our sister site, GORP.com: http://www.gorp.com/parks-guide/travel-ta-a-family-affair-vacationing-in-yellowstone-national-park-sidwcmdev_158962.html. Feel free to respond to this string if you need more ideas. Have a great trip!
