Junior Rangers Programme

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. We kindly ask those booking to carefully read confirmation emails upon booking, and to follow instructions on returning forms before the sessions are due to commence.

Dates

Saturday 6th July
Saturday 3rd August
Saturday 14th September

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!
