Sign up for exciting Junior Rangers events

Children aged between 5 and 12 can have fun in the great outdoors by joining the fabulous line up of summer holiday activities with the Junior Rangers Club.

Children can learn woodland crafts, enjoy arts activities and find out more about the animals and plants that live in our parks. Events have been organised by West Lancashire Borough Council Parks and Countryside Ranger Service in parks across the borough.

Councillor Yvonne Gagen, portfolio holder for Leisure said: “Children can learn a lot about nature and wildlife and enjoy other exciting activities in the Junior Rangers Club this summer. The events are free so book on and come and join the Junior Rangers.”

All Junior Rangers’ activities take place between 2pm and 4pm, starting with ‘Busy Bees’ at Coronation Park, Ormskirk on Monday 31 July. For a full list of Junior Rangers Club events, and where to meet on each day, please visit junior rangers.

All Junior Ranger events are accredited by the Children’s University, so participants can get a stamp on their Passport to Learning. Find more information on the Children's University (external link).

Children can even obtain the prestigious John Muir Discovery Award which helps them to discover, explore, conserve and share experiences in the wild. To read more about this award visit www.the john muir award website (external link) or contact Anne Faulkner, Park Ranger, on 01695 570258 or email anne.faulkner@westlancs.gov.uk. Children must register in advance and attend at least four sessions to achieve the award.

Booking opens seven days before each event and is essential to avoid disappointment. For more details on events, and to book places, please email beacon.park@westlancs.gov.uk or call 01695 622794. Children under eight must be accompanied by an adult when attending a Junior Rangers’ event.
