Are you a scout or troop leader looking for a way to protect and preserve our National Parks while you visit? The Scout Ranger program might be just what you're looking for!
Scouts who participate in educational or park approved volunteer programs or service projects at Cape Lookout and/or other national parks can become Resource Stewardship Scout Rangers.
There are two levels to the Scout Ranger program: the Scout Ranger Certificate and the Scout Ranger Patch. Which level you earn depends on how many hours you complete.
Scout Ranger CertificateScouts who complete at least five (5) hours working on a service project and/or attending education programs in a park are eligible to receive the Scout Ranger certificate.
Scout Ranger Patch
Scouts who complete ten (10) or more hours working on a service project and/or participating in educational programs are eligible to receive the Scout Ranger patch.
What counts towards Scout Ranger hours at Cape Lookout?
Please remember, all projects MUST be approved by the park before you begin.
Share you Experience!
Once you have received your Scout Ranger patch or certificate, you can e-mail a message and photographs to the National Park Service Youth Programs (e-mail us) or to Cape Lookout National Seashore (e-mail us). You can also tell others about your experience by reporting your completed Girl Scout Take Action Projects to to the GSUSA's Girls Changing the World website and Boy Scout Service Projects to the BSA's Journey to Excellence website.
