Junior Ranger Program

The Junior Ranger Program is a free summer program for children ages 5-12.

There are two levels:

  • Park Pal is for ages 5-8
  • Outdoor Adventurer is for ages 9-12

Registration & Activity Packets

Registration is now closed. See you next summer!

When you register online, you will receive an emailed receipt with a link to download the activity packet for the appropriate age group (ages 5-8 or 9-12). Participants can choose to complete the activities in the program packets on their own time throughout the summer within our Burlington County Parks, or join park staff at the specific times listed below for in-person programming.  Students who complete the activity packets can receive a unique Junior Ranger souvenir patch each year they participate!  Registration is required for all guided in-person programs for Park Pal (ages 5-8) and Outdoor Adventurer (ages 9-12) and each opens two weeks prior to the event. 

An adult must be present with all children ages 12 and under for the duration of each session. Most sessions last about 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the weather.
