Junior Ranger Boot Camp

Do you think you have what it takes to join the prestigious ranks of the North Carolina State Park Junior Rangers? If you do, the rangers at Lake James State Park want you! The Junior Ranger program is for kids ages 6-12 who have an interest in nature and stewardship. Join Park Ranger Jamie Cameron to receive your Junior Ranger workbook and participate in several activities that will put you well on your way towards earning your Junior Ranger certificate and patch. We’ll meet at the Paddy’s Creek Area bathhouse breezeway at 3 p.m. You must pre-register for this program by calling the park office at 828-584-7728.
