Junior Ranger Day Camp will take place over 4 days. There will be two separate sessions on back-to back weeks. Camp begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon each day.
Session 1 – July 11-14 (Monday – Thursday)
Session 2 – July 18-21 (Monday – Thursday).
The theme for this year’s camp is “Developing Outdoorsmanship Skills.”
Junior Rangers will learn things ranging from planning for camping, how to safely make and break down a campfire, and identifying organisms in nature, to interpreting animal remains, conservation fundamentals and basic first aid. Junior Rangers will also have the opportunity to participate in fun recreational activities like fishing, tubing and hiking.
Picnic Shelter 1 – in our picnic area by the river – will be the meeting place. Pick up and drop off will be at this shelter each day.
