The University of Arkansas Community College at Hope has partnered with the National Park Service to offer a Junior Ranger Explorer Summer Camp August 12 – 14. The National Park Junior Ranger Explorer Camp connects young people to their national parks through many hands-on, guided, and self-guided activities.  National Park Service has developed an outstanding camp that is sure to be an educational and fun experience for all Junior Rangers.  The camp is open for boys and girls 9 – 12 years of age to register to attend this FREE summer camp.

On Monday, August 12, the campers will be issued their Junior Ranger Gear which includes t-shirt, backpack, journal, water-bottle, and their very own picture ID like a real Junior Ranger.  On Monday, the campers will visit the President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site in Hope.  They will then travel to Hot Springs National Park, where they will tour historic Bathhouse Row and participate in guided nature hike.  On Tuesday, the campers will travel to Little Rock to visit Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site, attend a Leadership Workshop, and tour the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library.
