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 in the overall program opens June 13.  

Registration for Park Pal

Registration for Outdoor Adventurer

When you register online for the overall program, you will receive an emailed confirmation receipt with a link to download the activity packet for the appropriate age group. The activities in the program packets can be completed on your own time throughout the summer within our Burlington County Parks.  Students who complete the activity packet can receive a unique Junior Ranger souvenir patch each year they participate!

There are also individual weekly themed programs in July - August that coincide with the activities in the program packet led by our park staff.  Registration for the weekly in-person events is separate from the overall program and opens 2 weeks prior to the event.  All Junior Ranger registrants will receive instructions and a schedule of events when they register for the overall program.  An adult must be present with all children ages 12 and under.
