2015 Saguaro East Junior Ranger Camp Information

The Rincon Mountain District of Saguaro National Park will offer three Junior Ranger Camps during the month of June. These camps are designed for children 6 - 11 years of age. Participants will learn about the plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert through ranger-led hikes, environmental games and craft projects.

Each camp will meet Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at Saguaro National Park East. Wednesday afternoon includes a graduation ceremony where participants will become official Junior Rangers. This ceremony will begin at 12:00 noon - family and friends are invited to attend.

Camps are usually in the month of June, however there are no specific dates at this time for Summer 2015. We will post the dates as soon as we have them scheduled along with specific application open and close dates.

Applications will be accepted from February to early May. A lottery drawing to determine registrants will be held in early to mid May, with results available later that afternoon. Download an application here, and drop it off or mail it to the visitor center at 3693 S. Old Spanish Trail, 85730. Call (520) 733-5153 with any questions.

The cost of the three day program is $30.00 per child.
