In our last week of Junior Ranger Day Camp, join park rangers for a week dedicated to wilderness survival! Building on what we learned in “Survival Camp 1,” campers will continue to sharpen skills learned for wilderness survival. In addition to the prior mentioned skills, campers will also learn how to prepare food over a campfire! Campers do not need to attend both sessions of “Survival Camp” to get the most out of the experience, but we hope you can join us for both. Your child will work toward earning their official Cuyahoga Valley National Park Jr. Ranger badge at the closing ceremony on Friday. Parents are encouraged to attend!
