Summer is here and if you can't get to the beach, get to a state park! This week all four girls are going to a week-long Junior Rangers day program. The program varies from session to session, and the attendees can learn about the parks system, natural habitats, conservation, animal life, and the planet earth. Three of my girls are working on their Expert ranking, while the youngest is attending for the first time and will earn her Basic ranking.
Today, the girls played nature bingo, went on an orienteering hike, and took a canoe trip with the rangers. They are looking forward to the rest of the week and are excited about Friday's ceremony where they will receive their badges. My husband and I are working on a night or two of camping mid-week to make the experience even more memorable.
