Rock Creek Park's tradition of hosting Junior Ranger Camps continued this summer with more than 60 youth from the Washington, DC area learning about and exploring the park through myriad activities. Three free camps were offered in July, one each for youth ages seven through eight, nine through 10, and 11 through 12. Local youth participating in the DC Summer Youth Employment program led the camps along side park rangers and college interns.
