CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH CHESAPEAKE NATIONAL HISTORIC TRAIL JUNIOR RANGER PROGRAM
For ages 6 to 12 years old, you’ll experience a scavenger hunt at the Contact Station, a short hike to the adjacent Native Lands Park to learn about the Susquehannock Indians, and presentation on Susquehanna River wildlife to complete this Junior Ranger book and earn a Captain John Smith Chesapeake Trail Junior Ranger badge.
JUNIOR RANGER SOUND EXPLORER
For ages 5 to 12. Listen Up! You can become a Junior Ranger Sounds Explorer. Follow Lucy the Listening Owl on a journey to explore sounds you hear in parks, learn the science of sound and why sound is important to parks, and how to protect sounds you hear in parks and at home.
To accommodate smaller group sizes, we will have two time slots (Round 1 and Round 2) available. The same activities will take place during both time slots. Please sign up for one and let us know how many people will be in your entire group to allow us to accurately plan for our building capacity limits.
COVID-19 Safety Measures: All educators and staff will wear masks. Masks must be worn by visitors over the age of 2 while inside the house, on the grounds of the Zimmerman Center, and while partaking in guided tours to Native Lands County Park. To help keep everyone safe, this program is limited to a set number of participants, not to exceed the building’s small-gathering capacity limits. Activities will take place with social distancing in place. Timed tours, swearing in ceremonies, and house tours will be in place to limit group sizes.
