Cartoon Camp

 Little Rangers

RR LOGO FINAL.png

Rugged Research offers early childhood (Ages 3-6) weekly adventure classes in nature to have fun, explore and play!

 

Little Rangers will learn from  Park Rangers, Naturalists and Environmental Educators how to become inquisitive and caring towards nature to start developing the building blocks of environmental stewardship.

 

We believe that purposeful exploration is fundamental  to a child's growth and development.   Our program is designed to help children explore and discover.

 

Nature based education taps into children's sense of wonder and compliments all learning styles. 

Sessions will take place at several beautiful parks to experience seasonal changes in different Colorado ecosystems. Little Rangers will run, jump, get a little muddy and connect with the natural world all while having a blast!

 

Some themes we'll cover:

 

  • Water in our World!

  • Animals Around Us

  • In Our Sky

  • BUGS!

  • Leafs of the Fall

  • Rocks Rock!

Weather: 

Our classes run through all types of weather, making rain, snow, and sun all a part of our learning and play. If dangerous weather is in the forecast families will be informed if the class needs to be postponed and we will likely have the class that upcoming weekend instead. 

Ages:
All classes are for children ages 3-6.  

Location:
Each class takes place at a different ecosystem providing a new adventure and lesson every time! Classes will take place as some of the most beautiful parks and open spaces Northern Colorado has to offer! (See map below). Specific meeting points within the parks will be emailed out each week before the class but we will usually meet at the main trailhead.

While Little Rangers is only in Northern Colorado now, we do plan on having classes in the greater Boulder and Denver area soon. If you are interested in those future programs, please add your email to our mailing list below.

*Guardians must be present for program 

Cancellation/ Refund Policy:

Unfortunately, we can no longer offer refunds for cancellations of Little Rangers classes. If you would like to reschedule for a future date and apply your tuition as a credit for a future class, please send us an email to Contact@RuggedResearch.Org
