Junior Rangers

The Junior Ranger Program offers children, ages six through 14, a fresh look at the world around them!  Inspiring a love of nature and the outdoors, camps open the door to a lifetime of fun and adventure. 

These summer sessions provide hands-on opportunities for exploring and learning about the natural world through an array of fun and creative activities. Sessions are led by our dedicated and professional rangers, seasonal interpretive recreators and naturalists. 

Topics and activities vary from camp to camp but may include: Outdoor Safety, Astronomy, Reptiles and Amphibians, Aquatics, Map and Compass Navigation, Birds of Prey, Insects and Spiders, Primitive Weapons, Track Making and Identification, Outdoor Skills, Ecology, Canoeing, Hiking and much more. 

There are two ways to become a Junior Ranger.

  • Attend a Tennessee State Parks Junior Ranger Camp. 
  • Complete the Junior Ranger Adventure Guide. Download Here.

For those attending a Jr. Ranger Camp, registration is required. Details about a specific camp can be found on the individual park's event web page or by calling that park. For those unable to attend a camp, the Jr. Ranger Adventure Guide is a self-paced, free alternative. 

Upon completion of the program kids take the Junior Ranger pledge, receive a badge and are sworn in as official Tennessee State Park Junior Rangers! Remember: a healthier you = a healthier planet!

For complete details about a specific camp, please visit the park's event web page or call the park directly.

Thank you for making Tennessee State Parks part of your family history. Let’s Get Outdoors!
