This camp differs from previous years as it is being supported by members of Youth+, a follow on program for older Junior Rangers. Youth+ will run activities and share their experience with the young people at the camp. We will also take care of communication, and write articles for the website.
The Junior Rangers have arrived safe, are full of energy, and are ready to explore this beautiful park.
