Junior Rangers

Junior Rangers is a fun way for children ages 6-12 to explore North Carolina's state parks with their family, scouts troop or youth group. They:

  • Explore: Junior Rangers have fun at state parks! They follow park rules to stay safe and so the natural resources are here for the future.
  • Learn: Junior Rangers teach their family and friends what they learn about the park and how to take care of it.
  • Protect: Junior Rangers help park rangers take care of the park's natural resources.

Earn all Junior Ranger patches by visiting each state park.
