Junior Rangers at a Glance have limited space available

Elijah Clark State Park is set to host several summer activities for children.

The park’s events will begin with the “Summer Break” kickoff on Friday, May 27, from 1-4 p.m. The cost is $12 and children, age 5-12, will enjoy an afternoon of T-shirt tie-dying, bingo, and show and tell. Children must provide their own T-shirts to participate in the tie-dye class.

Junior Rangers at a Glance will be held on Saturday, May 28, from 1-5 p.m. The cost is $15 and children, age 6-12, will be taken hiking and canoeing; they will tour the Elijah Clark homestead replica cabin; and they will make a pioneer toy, “which is like an old-fashioned yo-yo,” Elijah Clark State Park Naturalist Juanita Farmer said.

“Space is limited for the Junior Rangers, so please sign up in ad­vanced,” Farmer added.

On June 6-7, the park is also hold­ing a special two-day Junior Rangers at a Glance program that will hone in on canoeing and archery. It costs $50, and children will need to take a sack lunch on day one, however on day two the kids will have lunch pre­pared for them over an open fire.

For information on any of the named events, as well as for more summer programming, contact the Elijah Clark State Park office at 706- 359-3458 or visit the park’s website at gastateparks.org/ElijahClark.
