Half Moon Bay State Beach offers a year-round program for Junior Rangers for children aged 6 to 12 and Little Ocean Explorers for children age 3-5.  Parents must remain with Little Ocean Explorers.

The one-hour programs cover a variety of topics, including animals, plants, geology, history, weather, recycling, safety and park careers.  They are tailored to the local environment and the resources of the park where the program is held.  Each activity provides a worthwhile experience that promotes further thought and action by the child, rather than just instruction.

Play games, hike trails, create your own animal, discover tracks, observe wildlife, all while making friends your own age.

Junior Ranger program is offered free of charge.
