North Carolina JR Ranger Program

Explore, learn and help out your state parks! The new Junior Ranger guide is packed full of fun activities you can do at any of our 39 state parks. Be a Junior Ranger!

• It's a fun way for children to explore with their family, scouts troop or youth group. Activities are geared for children ages 6-12.

• Children gain an appreciation of North Carolina's cultural and natural heritage and learn about careers in natural resources.

• A different Junior Ranger patch is awarded at each park

Hello everyone!  I would like to pass along a program that I am launching that may be of interest to you.  Please check out The 7th Generation School at www.7thgenerationschool.com.

I spent many years as a teacher working with at-risk youth as well as those diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders.  I have also recently been a wilderness guide/substance abuse counselor for a wilderness treatment center for young adults.  For many years I have been formulating this program out of my constant question, "What can I do?"  This program is my answer and humble offering to the planet. 

The 7th Generation School is a supplementary program (to a regular or homeschool curriculum) that not only connects youth with the natural world around them but also with the natural world that exists within them.  It is a therapeutic wilderness program (and more) for youth who need something more than what the schools offer.  Our intention is to provide a holistic and eco-centered supplement to our youth so that they may become their vision and purpose in the world.

I hope we get to connect soon!
