June 12th–June 16th @ Island Ford

Junior Ranger I (@ Island Ford)
(ages 9-12 only)

Each day, campers will engage in nature discovery and games, using the Island Ford Facility on the Chattahoochee River as our classroom. Campers will practice strategies learned during the week from their Junior Ranger booklet by canoeing in the facility’s pond and performing safety skills. We will learn to navigate throughout the park and we’ll explore the ponds/watersheds of the park while discussing conservation methods and the importance of the Chattahoochee River to the local Native Americans. Campers will learn about native plants and animals that inhabit the National Park. At the end of the week, campers will receive their Junior Ranger badges in a presentation led by the Rangers of the Chattahoochee National River Area.

Registration open February 1, 2017 for Members; February 15 for non-members.
