One of our FAVORITE programs is the Junior Ranger program with the State Parks – and Georgia’s is no exception! And now, they are even better (is that possible??)
Just in time for summer, the FREE quest will get kids exploring Georgia’s natural areas and history.
The new program features activity books specific to 59 state parks and historic sites! Along the way, kiddos earn wooden collectible badges from each park, plus up to five embroidered stickers for activities like fishing, camping, biking and volunteering.
While designed 3rd grade, any age can become a certified Junior Ranger.
Free Junior Ranger books can be picked up at Georgia’s State Parks and Historic Sites (and school groups can download activity sheets from the link above.)
Many sites have scheduled Junior Ranger day camps as well. Kids can meet new friends while taking ranger-led hikes, learning about Georgia wildlife and history, making nature crafts, taking boat rides and numerous other adventures.
After 18 years in software development, Lesli bailed on the corporate scene. When she’s not traveling, she’s hiking in the mountains or checking out Atlanta’s culinary scene, whiskey in hand.
Lesli has two kiddos -Cooper and Elliot- plus two bonus kids currently at UGA, and she’s happily married to her soul mate.
