Half Moon Bay State Beach offers a year-round program for Junior Rangers for children aged 7 to 12.
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.
JR Ranger Programs are held Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1:30 – 2:30 PM through Labor Day. Meet at the Campfire Center at the Francis Beach Campground. People who are interested in participating in a JR Ranger program can sign up in advance at: https://SantaCruzStateParks.as.me/HMBJRRangers
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.
