What is this post-apocalyptic kids TV movie I saw in the 90s or early 00s?

I saw this movie on TV and I think it was a made-for-TV movie, could be mistaken. I would've seen it on Nickelodeon, Disney, or another kid-oriented basic cable channel, around 1996 - 2000ish. It took place after some sort of apocalypse.
What I remember of the plot is that some kids, probably siblings, are trying to find this mythical, lush, oasis place that weathered whatever caused devastation to civilization (dunno if it's ever explained in the movie). There are some post-apocalyptic society scenes, I remember tents, and some fire or explosions? I think they meet some sort of mystical type woman? They also make friends with at least one adult who is trying to find the promised land place with them too - I think he dies or otherwise doesn't make it with them. At the end they make it, I remember finding it kind of a let-down because there's no one else there - it wasn't a thriving civilization or even comfortable camp of survivors, it was like, an empty, but green, park. They do cartwheels with excitement, then the movie just ends.
What movie is this? I tried some googling and looking up made-for-TV movies of those channels from the 80s and 90s, but no luck.
