things to do end of June in Mammoth with kids ages 8 & 10

We have never been to Mammoth and are planning a trip for the end of June. Can someone please recommend fun things to do with children ages 8 & 10. We enjoy outdoor activities. The kids love animals and nature. Are there places to see wild life? Canoe? Kayak? Other? Thanks!

How about ski? The ski resort is open for skiing until July 4th, there's massive amounts of snow on the mountain, still.

Our kids love the outdoors also. We took them on hikes to Rainbow Falls out of Red’s Meadow – you can take the shuttle down there from Minaret Summit. Minaret Falls out of Devil’s Postpile shuttle stop, Devil’s Postpile.

We hiked to TJ & Barrett Lakes out of Lake George area, we visited the dam area to watch and try to catch the giant fish at the top of Twin Lakes, we boated around Lake Mary, and we visited Horseshoe Lake which is fascinating.

We rode bikes on the bike park. Took the gondola to the top of Mammoth Mountain and threw sticks into the wind and watched them get carried away. Visited the earthquake fault, visited Hot Creek.

Hiked up to Obsidian Dome and pretended we were strong by hoisting lava rocks over our heads.

On days that it rained we saw a movie at the theater and bought sweets at Rocky Mountain Chocolate and t-shirts at Another T-Shirt Shop.

Over the years, we've done most of the previous things listed with our kids and grandkids. They, too, did the hike to Rainbow Falls and down to the river and jumped around on the rocks.

Fish - Lake Mary shoreline, or anywhere. Kittredge Sports helped w/getting kids' equipment together. Could never find the men! Easy hike to Emerald Lake, trailhead at the end of Coldwater campground at Lake Mary.

Picnics, pool. They enjoyed play equipment at Mammoth Park at all ages, and throwing pebbles in the creek adjacent to the park. Riding bikes or walking on the paved trail - collecting pine cones.

In addition to Hot Creek and the springs, they liked to feed the fish at the Fish Hatchery.

Short drive to Convict Lake, Mono Lake, and Bodie.

You will have a wonderful time.
