EMINENCE, MO: Ozark National Scenic Riverways is hosting a free Junior Ranger Day Camp at Round Spring, July 24 – 27. Children are invited to spend the morning with a Park Ranger from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day from Monday, July 24, through Thursday, July 27. The day camp will be a great opportunity for kids to enjoy fun, exciting and educational activities as they become "Junior Rangers."
Activities will focus on the development of outdoor skills and the study of natural wonders in the park. A paddling class will be presented by certified instructors from the American Canoe Association, and archery will be taught by National Archery in the Schools Program instructors. Children will explore the newly constructed Round Spring Spur of the Ozark Trail along with leaders from the Ozark Trail Association. At the conclusion of the program, participants will receive a Junior Ranger badge. This program is targeted at children seven to twelve years of age. Space is limited, so call the Round Spring Ranger Station at 573-323-8093 to reserve a spot for your children and to receive detailed information about the program schedule and activities.
