Are you an aspiring Junior Ranger looking to spend a super weekend camping and hiking in a beautiful state park? Would you like to explore the land and learn outdoor skills like identifying plants and wildlife? If so, join us for the Lewis & Clark Caverns Junior Ranger Campout!

The campout begins on Saturday, August 4th at 4:30pm and runs through Sunday, August 5th to 11:00am. Campers will meet at the Greer Gulch Loop parking lot at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park to set up camp. During the campout, participants will hike the park’s best trails, complete fun Junior Ranger activities, learn about Bats and Blooms from the Park Ranger, and cook up some yummy campfire food.

The cost is a free-will donation. This event is geared to those who are aged 8 to 14. Participants are encouraged to bring their own tents and sleeping bags, as park camping gear is limited. Weather-appropriate clothing and sunscreen are also recommended. To register, please contact Rebekah.Smith@mt.gov, or call the park visitor center for more information.
