Junior Ranger Program at Sprewell Bluff State Park

FL Note: This sounds like a fun last fling of summer adventure for the kids!

On August 6 – 8, Sprewell Bluff State Park will offer a three-day Junior Ranger program for children ages 8 – 12. The camp will last from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm for all three days, and cost $30.00 per child. Each participant will learn about the diverse natural environments at Sprewell Bluff State Park, and have fun participating in activities such as fishing, learning about native plants and wildlife, and hiking the many trails at the park. All participants will complete enough exercises to earn a Level 1 Junior Ranger patch, and have a good foundation for earning levels two and three on their own time.

The Junior Ranger Program is a set of activities developed by Georgia Parks, for children ages 6 – 12 to participate in on their own time, or at parks sponsoring a Junior Ranger day camp. A junior ranger activity book is available at any state park office and free to any interested participants. The exercises are designed to encourage children to explore Georgia’s many diverse parks, and historic sites. All the Park Rangers at Georgia Park’s are committed to helping families learn more about our natural and cultural resources, and protecting and sharing these resources for you and your family.

Sprewell Bluff has an incredible amount of natural resources just waiting to be discovered. From the incredible array of birds along the river, to the Shoal Bass that calls the Flint River home, the multitudes of dragon and damselflies, and open pine savanna rich in native plants and wildlife, to the unique Geology that created Sprewell Bluff, the Junior Rangers will experience all aspects of this unique place.

For more information on this program, and for registration, please call the Sprewell Bluff State Park Office at 706-646-6026, or stop by and talk to a ranger. Pre-Registration is required, and payments in check or cash can be made at the park office, near the entrance of the park, or by talking to one of the park staff.
