Junior Ranger Programs at National Parks

“Ever imagined how grizzly bears and elks came to the Smokies,
how the wolves and bison inhabited the Rockies,
how the glaciated landscape benefits the animals at Yosemite,
how Red Indians interact at the grand canyons,
How Niagara falls water can be contained or consumed”

And for the ample such interrogations as you reach the park gate with your little scientist,

Campnavigator brings you all the answers for your child’s intellectual and extra-curricular needs.

There are some wonderfully enriching exercises at the parks which not only give insights to your child but also develops their interest in heritage and wildlife. Junior Ranger Programs at National Parks are specially designed for young children age 3-15. The National Parks Service has this special program for inspiring and involving children visiting the parks. These young Rangers get exciting activity books, which are generally free. These books are rich in knowledge and activities for little wanderers and are aimed at sharing deeper insights into flora and fauna diversity at the parks. And also to help children understand the historical significance of that park. Many national parks, some state parks and the rest have comprehensive booklets at their visitors center. There are ample programs from ages 3 till 15 for diverse aspects at the national park. Just grab one online or at visitors center and mesmerize your little rover.
