Become A Junior Ranger
The Marble Arch Caves Junior Ranger program is activity-based, designed to engage children (6yrs – 11yrs old) in the natural world around the Marble Arch Caves. They will learn about woodlands, trees, caves, local wildlife, and how they can help protect them. Our Marble Arch Caves Ranger, Dr Kate Crane, will join twenty children who will participate in a series of outdoor activities and experience aspects of her work. At the end of their experience, the children are sworn in as Junior Rangers and will receive an official Junior Ranger certificate.
The Junior Ranger programme is suitable for children interested in any of the following:
- Finding out about the landscape surrounding the Marble Arch Caves
Learning about the work of the Marble Arch Caves Ranger
- Experience nature, conservation and wildlife
- Love getting outdoors and having fun adventures
- Making new friends
How does it work
The Junior Ranger program will run over three Saturdays, one each month. The sessions will run for 2 hours from 10:00am – 12:00pm. When booking you will purchase a ticket which covers the duration of the three dates. On registration your child will receive a starter pack.

All activities will be led by Ranger Kate, who has designed a program which will feed the natural curiosity of children. Weather conditions may alter what we do, but will include some of the following activities: tree nursery establishment, conservation work, mini- projects and lots of fun!
