In addition to free Ranger Programs, many national parks also have a park association (usually a non-profit group that supports the park and the park service's mission). Some of these offer classes/programs in addition to the park service's. For example, at the Grand Canyon South Rim, we have the Grand Canyon Association. They have a "Field Institute" that offers guided hikes and family programs about the park. Some also offer programs that are packaged with the in park concessioner for lodges & meals. In some parks these are called "Learning & Lodging", some are "Lodging & Learning", or other. You should be able to find out about these types of programs at the park service websites. Start at www.nps.gov and you can navigate to the park(s) you're interested in.
